Displays text files in a Terminal window.

Overview

Less Termlet wraps Less (Less is a command-line text file viewer program) in a Mac OS X application. The Less Termlet is somewhat like Apple's Preview application, except it only displays text files in a Terminal window.

The Less Termlet can be used by dragging and dropping files onto it, or using "Open With" from the Finder's context menu.

Well, I'll grant you there isn't a large point to this app, but it can be mildly useful. Less itself is a good tool - particularly useful for dealing with huge log files. The Less Termlet just provides convenient access to Less from the Finder environment, and allows some simple customization (window size, font, etc). Of course, the green-bar paper background is purely for fun. For daily use, I'd recommend reseting the background.

i think that this MIGHT be useful, if i could open a file from the command line, change the background and stuffs, and undo it on when exiting the program. XP

The Less Termlet can be launched from the command line with the open command: % open -a Less apache_log This will open a new Terminal window for less, which is close to what you describe. Wrapping 'open -a Less' in a shell alias would make it more convenient.
