I've set up a .bat file in windows to auto run ccleaner in the background using the

"C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO

line of code. How can I do this for Mac OS X Snow Leopard?

This is actually not a programming question - but you can use the Automator to run a certain task automatically. Pretty intuitive user interface. –  Sebastian Wramba Apr 26 '12 at 12:41
    
Thanks, I'll give this a go. Can you run multiple tasks at once with automator? –  James Banks Apr 26 '12 at 12:57

This is actually not a programming question - but you can use the Automator.app to run a certain task automatically. Pretty intuitive user interface.

In addition to your second question: You can add multiple tasks (from predefined actions to custom AppleScript stuff) in one "run cycle". Just launch the program, it's quite easy to use, you'll see.

I've tried using automator + terminal in combination to have autorun work, but so far I've only managed it to trigger ccleaner opening, but not autorunning. Is there a 'run' command or something similar with terminal's syntax? –  James Banks Apr 27 '12 at 1:55
