that's a bad example!

~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ is a directory! OK, you use 'chmod -R' but  
it too changes the directory's permissions. The correct command would  

	chmod 755 ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/*

or, more exact:

	chmod 755 ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/*.engine

«pdflatex --shell-escape "${fbName}"» is a bit of overhead. Here the  
variable's name stands alone so it's not needed to help the tcsh  
interpreter to interpret the text correctly. Here you can save the  
curly braces, which are useful on this line: «makeindex -c -s  
indexkorr.ist "${fbName}.idx"» because here the variable's name could  
be mis-interpreted as fbName.idx.

My bibtex has no option '--shell-escape' ...
