I'd like to take a look at the internal workings of the New Terminal Tab at Folder service you can enable in System Preferences. My goal is to find out how to open a new tab in a running Terminal window.

But where is it? I have searched in the following places:

  1. /Library/Scripts/Folder Actions
  2. /Library/Contextual Menu Items
  3. /System/Library/Services
  4. /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources
  5. /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app/Contents/Resources

but couldn't find it. In Terminal, with

sudo find / -iname '*new*terminal*tab*'

I didn't get it either. Where can it be?
