    I'm writing a bash script that requires me to open a new command line tab, but I'm not sure what shell command to put in order to create open a new tab. Does anyone know what it is?

    I seriously doubt you will find one. The concept of a shell "tab" is a UI thing for the Terminal application. The shell itself doesn't really have anything to do with the Terminal application. You might be able to do it with Applescript. But I don't know Applescript.
