The above meant an example of a (TC) shell script. The TeXShop ENGINE

This second part of your question does not fully compute. Among my own  
ENGINE files are such that allow \write18 or -shell-escape, select  
xdv2pdf for xe(la)tex, own latex2* variants, one for hevea, an  
experiment with fontinst, others with Sweave, Lilypond, TeX4ht,  
ps4pdf. Of particular use are ENGINE files that do quite nothing (just  
check particular settings of the environment in which the shell script  
executes) or record this environment in files.

You could also start reading here: http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/navigation/index.html#section 
/apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40001067 points to a Command Line Primer. And for  
shell programming this might be useful: http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/documentation/OpenSource/Conceptual/ShellScripting/Introduction/Introduction.html 
. (With installing Xcode it's also locally available, for long  
evenings in a hut without network access.)
