AppLaunch is a Mac OS X version of the common “Run” or “Launch” dialogs provided by other operating systems and window managers such as Windows or KDE. It consists of an input box where the user enters a command line that will be passed to the applications workspace. A command in the AppLaunch meaning is not only a “pure” shell command; as of version 2 it may also be a file, an application, or an URL.
