iHook is a graphical frontend for any commandline executable. With iHook, your scripts or UNIX tools can provide user feedback in an aqua window. It is much easier than writing a Cocoa NSTask wrapper or an AppleScript Studio application.

James has been using iHook as part of Student Computing Labs' Mac OS X deployment. He will cover why iHook is an important tool as well as discuss how to use it.
