Big Cat

[ #9020 ]

Ranchero Software has Big Cat, which allows you to call scripts from a contextual menu, on files in the Finder, or on text in many applications. You can process with compiled AppleScripts, or shell scripts (including Perl scripts).

Here's a perl script I keep in the Big Cat folder called "Set Type - BBEdit".

#!/usr/bin/perl
use MacPerl 'SetFileInfo';
SetFileInfo('R*ch', 'TEXT', @ARGV);

Ahhhhhhhh.

    What I'd love to use this for is a real right click root menu, like I used to use under X11/blackbox. I had every app I ever needed on that menu, including a folder containing an item which fired off a Konsole or other terminal ssh'ed into a specific host.
