Launching Finder from Terminal in OS X?

I use Terminal a lot on OS X, and it would be happy if I could launch a Finder window for the current directory. On Windows I do this via:

C:\DOS> cmd /c start .

Is there an equivalent for OS X?

“open .”

Something else to check out is TextMate, which integrates with the shell and gives you the ability to type “mate whatever” – including a directory, which opens up the entire directory structure in the text editor, giving you 1-click access to the files and easy search/replace. Very handy for projects.

You rule, thanks.
