http://stackoverflow.com – I've written a simple bash script for deleting some temporary files that match a certain pattern: #!/bin/bash cd ~/some_project/some_dir rm */*.xml I've saved it as 'script', chmodded it to +x via terminal. Now when I double click this file, I get the option to Run it in terminal or display its output. If I click Run in terminal, the script correctly works, however the terminal window closes immediately. I'd rather the window stay open so I can see if there were any errors (and possibly get rm to display names of deleted files if possible). I'm looking for a simple way to keep the terminal (HowTos)
