    Launching applescript from bash
    i wrote a bash script, renamed it to script.command so the users run it,
    then from inside it i call an applescript using "exec osascript XXXX"
    all that goes well except a command window
    that i am trying to make it close automatically

    How ?

    I haven't used the exec command before. What is special about it?

    What I would try in this case is just; "osascript XXX &". The & symbol will allow you to run the command as a separate process and return to your script immediately. Well, at least from the command line.
