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.

Possibly something like this:
#!/bin/sh cd path-to-ventrilo.directory command to start server &
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: http://linuxcommand.org/
If what you want is something double-clickable, someone else who knows Apple scripting (not me) might can help?Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!
