New utility: rehash_services

This is one that I’ve had kicking around for awhile. A tweet by Augie Fackler prompted me to post it.

rehash_services is a simple command-line tool that does exactly one thing: It updates the contents of your Services menu. You’d use this after installing or updating an app that provides services, in order to update the Services menu without logging out.

Note: You don’t need to use this when creating services with ThisService, as those services automatically refresh the Services menu on launch.

In case you’re wondering: It works by calling NSUpdateDynamicServices. That’s all. The program is really short.
