I want to know what file is modified when I run a terminal command like:

 osascript -e "set Volume 0.5"

Is there a way to do this? I'm thinking maybe a command that looks for recently modified files in setting directories.

In general, you can use ‘opensnoop’ which will list files being accessed in realtime. You'll need to disable SIP to use this command.

sudo opensnoop

To use opensnoop on a specific process such as osascript, use

sudo opensnoop -n osascript

For that specific command, no file is modified. It's setting the current volume, that's all.
