What is Runscript for Mac

Runscript is a simple maintenance and optimization utility for Mac OS X. It's an applescript application that allows the user to:
  • Run Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Cron Scripts.
  • Update Prebindings.
  • Repair Disk Permissions.
  • Clean Cache and Log Files.
  • Enable/Disable the Exposé Blob (Mac OS X 10.3 Only).
  • Enable/Disable Verify Disk Image Checksums (Mac OS X 10.3 Only).
  • Force a (Unix) Shutdown/Restart.

What's new in Runscript

Version 2.3 adds the following:
  • Scripts are now run by selecting the appropriate check boxes and then clicking the "Run" button.
  • Runscript now asks if you are sure if you want to shutdown or restart your computer and also gives you an option to force it.
  • A progress wheel and text description have been added to show the user exactly what Runscript is doing.
  • Terminal windows opened by Runscript are much smaller than before.
  • Panther only features in the "Misc." tab are now labeled.
  • On quitting, Runscript now only closes Terminal windows that it has opened, and then only quits the Terminal if no other windows are open.
  • Runscript is now installed from a package with the Mac OS X installer.

After running Runscript 2.2 to force prebindings on my computer, it would not lanch any applications. So I ran disk permissions from the startup disk and restarted then everything was fine. What happened?

Excellent program. Run the most vital OS X maintenance scripts, optimization scripts, and can purge system caches, that take up too much room anyways. Very simple, easy interface, with explanations on script options. For each script terminal pops up, and runs it so you can see what's going on. If you don't usually run maintenance scripts yourself, or don't bother to, this'll be the perfect program for you.
