  1. Hi, can someone tell me the origin of the “>” symbol in the Terminal icon? It is not appearing in the Terminal window and, I believe, neither in other command line scripting applications I saw before.

    Maybe it’s obvious but I’m just curious…


  2. You can have a look to, particularly the SCO0099 – OS X Terminal Basics podcast.

    (And a lot more interesting stuff !)

    Enjoy !
