I was told about CLIX, a utility that does a lot of what TinkerTool,
Xupport, et al. do. But, it does so by using command line
instructions and is set up to teach one how to do expand on its 250
built in options. It is also way cool and it's FREE. I'm using it
now and have gotten rid of a bunch of utilities I no longer need.
Folks like Bruno will probably appreciate the fact that it does not
hack your system, it merely uses the CLI to access features that
don't have a GUI yet.
From the website <http://www.rixstep.com/4/0/clix/>:
CLIX ('command line interface for OS X') makes it easier to
assimilate the power of Unix. It becomes both a fish to buy and a
series of lessons in how to fish, and ultimately can become a handy
work of reference.
It doesn't try to rip you off - it tries to teach you, so you become
more independent and don't need that line thrown at you all the time.
The CLIX package includes a starter command database file with over
250 (over two hundred fifty - yes, you read it right) system commands
for investigating your system status, for cleaning out your junk
files, for getting at secret settings for the Dock, the Finder, and
all of your most used applications - and all sorted for easy access,
any way you wish.
The author of this utility also has lots of other items (not all
free), and those of you who are NextStep fans will probably find much
to your liking at the webstie:
