in reply to Mac OSX Opening .app & UNIX EXEC

I tried a few experiments to get around this, but all have failed. One of which was to use the "open" shell command which doesn't re-open the application at all (no error or anything).

Man pages are your friend:

NAME open -- open files and directories SYNOPSIS open [-a application] file ... open [-b bundle_identifier] file ... open [-e] file ... open [-t] file ... open [-f]

You want the -a flag

    "open" in the terminal works fine without the -a flag. But for testing reasons, I also compiled it with the flag and it still doesn't open (no error either).
