comment How can I copy files from my Mac to PC via Microsoft Remote Desktop?
@Senseful I think you should clarify that you're using RDC's file sharing feature, not Mac's native "File Sharing" via SMB (in File Sharing options). RDC's file sharing sets up something that looks like an SMB share (starts with 2 backslashes).

comment iPhone 4s: How do I see versions of my apps?
Thanks - that worked. I thought I tried that, but I might've clicked on a built-in app instead one from the Store. Built-in ones don't show the version.

comment Can I create a Desktop Shortcut/Alias to a Folder from the Terminal?
I know what it was - you can't have a trailing slash!

Ah, you're right. I got an error before, but I must've mistyped something.

Note that the spaces/special chars problem would exist in any solution - the shell can't know that you meant to pass 1 parameter rather than 2 separate ones.

I think you meant ln -s ~/Library/path/to/folder folder. One minor disadvantage to this method (ie symlinking) is that the link will be broken if the "original" (ie the target) is moved or renamed.

If you're using the bash script, you should put the filename in single quotes if it has any spaces or special characters. However, this will prevent ~ from being expanded. The best thing is not to use quotes, and to tab complete the filename so bash will properly "escape" the special characters. E.g. type ~/Library/Application then press tab. If Application Support was the only match, the shell should have inserted a backslash before the space. You can also manually use a backslash to escape.

I just tried using ~ and it doesn't work with the one-line osascript command. I suggest using the script file instead, because the ~ is converted automatically.
