    Assuming it is named "foo", rename it "foo.command".
    In the Finder, do a "Get Info" on it, and verify that it is set to Open
    With: Terminal.

    Naturally, you've set its unix permissions to executable (in Terminal:

    chmod u+x foo.command



    --------------
    Now, you can double click on it and run it.

    You can also use the appleScript command "do shell script", as in:

    do shell script "~/foo.command"


    and, on the "Save As" dialog, choose to save it as an application.
    The advantage of this technique is it doesn't bring up a terminal window.

    Then, you can do a Get Info, click on the icon on the Get Info window,
    and paste a new icon there (copied from a graphics application).
