Best Xtra Ever

I just discovered the Valentin Shell Xtra . I know it has been around for a bit, but this is the first time I’ve have to use it. Wow. Such a simple concept, but so powerful. It just allows you to issue shell commands and get the results. I’m using it on Mac OS X, but there is a Windows version too. Since you can do a bazillion things with shell commands, this makes the Xtra so amazingly powerful. You get the results back as a string or a list. I’m just using it to send a “curl” command which will send a file to a FTP server. But that’s just th tip of the iceburg. Plus, it is free.
