Seems I've forgotten to reply-to-all (sorry peeps) ...

OK. I've clearly not explained myself. And I know Windows isn't

I know I can rename the files back and forth all day long. That is EXACTLY
what I'm already doing. It is plainly a stupid way to go.

I know I could type lovely long command lines - but why? I want to just
double click a file and get it to do what I want. And I can't seem to find
even the simplest questions.

If I could find the mechanics that associates a file extension to a
program, I'd be onto a winner with the 'open -a ...' option.

'open -a --args --calc

works perfectly from the command line. It does exactly what I want.

So, how do I make THIS the command that is ran when I double click a file?
