Subject RE: Running .app on Mac OSX
Date Tue, 12 Jun 2007 16:44:59 GMT
The open command may background the app. I would look at the command
line options for "open" to see if you can run the app in the foreground.
You could also look inside the application directory for the executable
and run that instead of open.
