Yes, of course! You just need to remember that a TeXShop engine only  
accepts one file name. And it's the name of the file TeXShop works on  
right now when you press the button.

So the solution will become inflexible: either the LaTeX file's name  
is constant or that of the glossary file. Let's assume that you are  
mainly working on the LaTeX code and the glossary is kind of side- 
work. You can have both files open at the same time, and when you  
saved the recently changed glossary, you can work on the whole  
document from the LaTeX source. So the engine would be:

	fname="`basename "$1" .tex`"	# here the LaTeX file's name is given
	latex  "$fname"
	bibtex "<file name>.gls"	# this is the constant name!
	latex  "$fname"
	latex  "$fname"

Instead of latex you can use pdflatex.

And particularly think of changing the text inside the quotes of  
"<file name>.gls" to the real file name. The glossary file should be  
put into the same directory as the LaTeX source.

You can make the script finish faster by evaluating return or status  

	if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
	    echo "Fehler (La|Bib)TeX!"
	    exit 1

	if [ $status -ne 0 ]; then
	    echo "Fehler $status bei (La|Bib)TeX!"
	    exit $status

after each latex or bibtex run.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
