    Terminal Script...
    I do not know many terminal commands but I am looking for an easy way to start my ventrilo server. right now I have to open terminal go to the ventrilo directory and drag the ventrilo_srv file onto the terminal window to start the server.

    I want to know if there is a way to write up a script that will automatically do this for me and I just have to run the script to start the server, similar to windows batch command I guess I am looking for. thanks in advance

    The only thing I have been able to find is by entering the command, highlighting it, then going to Services> Script Editor. I keep getting Syntax Errors though. You can give it a shot.

    chmod +x filename
    Now all you need to do is open Terminal and type ./filename and the server should start.

    This is called a shell script. For more info on scripts try here:
    If what you want is something double-clickable, someone else who knows Apple scripting (not me) might can help?
