STREAMLINE YOUR SYSTEM
These handy utilities help you keep your system running smoothly. Of course, “handy” is relative. Why not have a little fun with Unix while you’re at it?
System-tweaking utilities like TinkerTool (free, www.bresink.com) and OnyX (donationware, www.titanium.free.fr) put a friendly GUI on powerful Unix commands that you could fire off yourself if you knew them. But you’ll never learn anything that way. Try Rixstep’s CLIX (free, www.rixstep.com/clix), short for Command Line Interface for Mac OS X. It’s just the right mix of power, ease of use, and helpful education.
CLIX bridges the gap between regular folks and Unix’s manual files, which lack any syntax help for assembling a command. For example, FTP-ing a file from your Desktop to a server requires a specific arrangement of the file’s location, the server’s address, your login info, and the file’s destination.
