On the Mac OS, if you need to know what files are open and by what application and on what disk, you can use the lsof command in Terminal.

Pair that command with grep and you can isolate things like this:

lsof | grep "Snow Leopard"

This will show you what files are open that have “Snow Leopard” in the name.

There are some really cool implementations of this technology at chromeexperiments.com, with a really cool demo of a water simulation and a cute video game.

Thanks to altdevblogaday.com for blogging about this!

This command will take my clipboard contents, which were originally created from Xcode, pass that to the c++filt command and then create a new file in TextMate with the resulting contents.
