this is good. is there an easy way to kill the client process from inside emacs? that would be even better don't you think? looks tricky through server.el

probably not because i don't want the history to be wiped and i think there is a problem with that. although i need to master the bash history stuff a bit better.

comment How can I run Mac OSX graphical Emacs in daemon mode?
Is this solved? How did you get Emacs.app to connect to the daemon?

I updated my question to include a solution using a for loop that allows for spaces in filenames using xargs. It seems to work if you don't have bash 4. If you have bash 4, then definitely use brace expansion! See the selected answer. Shameless plug to upgrade Snow Leopard bash

I would only add one more comment. The methods you've given above using echo will work as long as you don't have spaces in your filename. At that point they break down. I've had this issue in the past but I avoid files with spaces at all costs. Just a word of warning and why the brace expansion is so nice. Rather than screw with this for loop crap anymore, I went ahead and installed a new version of bash on OSX here is how you do that if others are curious

Dennis, is there any way you'd update your solution to include the alternate form. Being a comment it's kinda obfuscating what I'm probably supposed to get.

Well, it's cause Snow Leopard (for some reason) is using bash 3.1. This is a software issue.
