Finder and Terminal Are Friends

LSelect (via Dr. Drang):

lselect is an AppleScript that lets you select files in the Finder using shell glob syntax as you would to list files with ls. For an animated illustration of how it works, view this short screencast.

Curt Clifton:

As developers, we tend to spend a lot of time typing in Terminal windows. Even so, I often find it more helpful to browse directories and files in Finder. I have three little hacks that simplify moving between the two modes.

Update (2017-02-03): Austin Ziegler notes this script, which can keep a Finder window updated with the current directory in a Terminal window.
