Tip: Open new tab in OS X Terminal

Another simple shell function, this time just for OS X.

Usage is simple: tab <command> opens a new tab in Terminal, and runs the given command in the current working directory. For example tab script/server would open a new tab and run script/server.

tab () {
  osascript 2>/dev/null <<EOF
    tell application "System Events"
      tell process "Terminal" to keystroke "t" using command down
  	tell application "Terminal"
      do script with command "cd $PWD; $*" in window 1
    end tell
