    open a terminal with top on startup
    Hi, I want my terminal to open a window with top running an then open a new window for me to work in. I put the following in my .bash_profile:

    open -a -n terminal
    but that just continues to open terminals and run
    on them.

    Any ideas how to do this. It's not the biggest pain type top and then cmd-n but I would just like to know how to do it.
