That's weird because in my script I use the Unix path of "/tmp" and not 
the Mac path of "Hard Drive:private:tmp".

That's even weirder. Maybe something went wrong when you pasted the 
script into the macro editor? I suggest you get back to my original 
mail, copy the script from there and paste it directly into the macro 
editor. And before you do that please check that you have a new version 
of TeXShop. I wrote and tested this with TeXShop 1.34.

Maybe it should, but I just overwrite them everytime the script runs. 
As I was saying in my mail when I posted the script, it's fast enough 
for me, so I didn't bother to try and optimize it. One obvious step 
would have been to check, wether citekeys and citekeys.bst were already 
in /tmp. Maybe I should try to incorporate that check. Anyways, all the 
files that reside in /tmp will be deleted the next time the computer is 
restarted that's why I chose that directory for the temporary files.

Thanks must go to Will because without his scripts I wouldn't have been 
able to do this.

	Ciao, Thomas
