    Write an FTP client with a built in SSH pane. I hate having to constantly switch between Cyberduck and Terminal when I only need to do a couple of commands and copy a few files over. Would just make it nice and easy.

    How about a GUI utility wrapper for sudo periodic daily/weekly/monthly?

    Article about making Cocoa wrappers for terminal commands hereif it floats your boat. Ran into this article while researching my own project that will need to pipe some terminal commands out and grab the response.

    does your book "Cocoa Programming For Mac OS X" (3rd Ed.) have ghetto binding also? i'm almost finished reading it also and it's about to fall apart... i ordered a replacement from Amazon (they said i could keep the first one because it's so damaged) and it has the same weak binding... would like to know if they're all like that...

    Do you need FTPS support?

    Edit: Yep mine also has poor bindings. Fortunately I just use it at home everywhere else i use a chm version.

    Do you mean SFTP? Not really, to be honest it is just the first thing that came into my head. There are lots of different apps that are probably easier to make that I could come up with.

    I meant FTPS (FTP/SSL). I'm looking connection kit and it only supports ftp and sftp that's why I asked.

    Edit: Maybe, like Denarius, said i could make a wrap but for sftp command that way it would be really easy to share a console and a gui for the same sftp session.

    Ah, I meant write your own client with network code. You'd learn more that way.
