If you can open it...

...you should be able to close it.

How (in Terminal), can you close a directory or (close) dismount a share? I'm wrecking my unimachead! This is so simple, I've forgotten.

Opening a directory:

$Open /

The open command comes from NextStep. Use AppleScript to manipulate GUI applications.
Code:
osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to close window 1'

or
Code:
osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to close every window'

Use diskutil to dismount a share.
