OS X tip

You can use the open command to pipe data to an installed app. Here is an example where we use curl to download a Ruby script and pipe it to the Ruby executable with a param and then pipe the result data to the Preview application.

$ curl -sL bit.ly/nNQcIL | ruby - '<3 @tenderlove'| open -fa Preview.app

FYI the script sends a command to +Aaron Patterson server which prints your text (the quoted argument from above) on his LED screen and sends you back a picture of the place where he stashed the screen.

Check the man page to see more option:
$ man open

If like me you spend a lot of time on the command line, you will find open very useful. To open an app, just do:
$ open -a Xcode.app

(Obviously replace "Xcode" by the name of whatever app you want to open)

If PHP Were British. When Rasmus Lerdorf first put PHP together, he - quite sensibly, despite his heritage - chose not to write it in Greenlandic or Danish. Good job too - that would have been rather ...
