Terminal.app and .command Files in Panther

| | Comments (0)
.command file support is broken for me in Panther.

I have a command file on my Desktop, call it "foo.command". Terminal.app is not running. I double click it, it launches Terminal.app, it runs the command in a new window. Fine. I do it again, fine. As much as I want to, keep doing it, it works.

But then ... it stops working. For no reason. I try again 20 seconds later, and it no longer works. I click, but no window opens. I don't do anything but simply wait. What is UP?

I even completely removed my com.apple.Terminal.plist file, so it is not my prefs, it seems. What is UP? use.perl.org
