    hi there

    i want to launch a an applescript application twice. so, in the shell i
    $ &
    and again:
    $ &

    that works fine. BUT: it works only when i don not terminate the shell in

    so my question is: how can i invoke an application from a shell and then
    quit the shell without waiting for the end of the script? are there
    shelloptions for that?
