Cool Mac Terminal trick

If you’re like me and open quickly under Mac OS X to do something, but then want to open your working directory in the Finder (perhaps to drag something to another location or just see the current directory graphically), I found a really neat trick.

The simple command:

open .

Will open the current directory in the Finder. Very useful for me anyway.
