Thanks for that,

I am also out of my league with MAC stuff but intuitvely :) something
towards (I know its wrong) ...

using a second parameter to be the page number - not sure what
"basename" is should we have say pagenumber or is baseanme a directive
of some sort? `pwd' looks like it returns the path from a system call



       name=$(basename "$1" .pdf)

       page=$(basename "$2")

       /usr/bin/osascript << END
       tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro"
               open POSIX file "$basefname.pdf" options "page=$page"
       end tell

Yep, I too await those who know how to peel it right and spit out the pips :)
