AppleScript is a scripting language for the Macintosh. It is a high-level English-like language that has been compared to batch files on PCs, but it is more like UNIX shell scripts in its power and flexibility.
AppleScript scripts are recordable
, have access to just about all Finder
functions, and let one use several apps together to manupulate data.
Its simplicity, power, and elegance are a testament to the innovation Apple Computer put into the MacOS.
