I'm using Applescript and the:
do shell script "open -a Safari 'URL'" command to send the freetext URL to the API page. Everything is formed correctly except for the literal '#'

So, the command above ends up sending this, which doesn't work:
http://www.playlist-converter.net/%23/freetext=Mary%20Had%20A%20Little%20Lamb%20-%20Frank%20Palmer%0AHappy%20Birthday%20to%20You%20-%20James%20Hamilton

Do you have any suggestions for passing the literal '#' rather than the %23 that's getting sent from bash's open command?

Thanks for answering. My issue ended up having to do with URL encoding on my end (different methods of posting the data to your site encoded differently). I finally found a method of posting the data as a literal string so that no encoding was done midstream.
