  • From the open(1) man page:
    -W Causes open to wait until the applications it opens (or that were already open) have exited. Use with the -n flag to allow open to function as an appropriate app for the $EDITOR environment variable.
    • Errrr! How many times have I looked at the open(1) page, thinking, "How can there not be a 'stay foregrounded' option?"

      Thank you for noticing the mote in my eye!

      • I've asked myself the very same question many times, but the -W switch must be new in 10.5. On 10.4.11, there's no mention of -W in the open(1) man page, and neither does the command itself seem to recognize the switch.
