Hi all, There seems to be a consensus that Applescript has its place in our FB arsenal in spite of being *slow*. Applescript seems to be : -- easy to program -- easy to integrate with FB, in compiled form or not (see list archives and Apple's Q&A 1026). -- powerful -- more accessible that Carbon Further, I recall that Otto Schlosser once mentioned the team documentating Applescript winning an industry prize. So I raked over my downloads since 2000 and came up with: -- an HTML version of Apple doc published by Apple in 1999 written by a team headed by Steve Evangelou (my edition updated May 1999; HTML but appently originally in PDF and/or paper). No URL recorded but I got to it via Steve Bender's TeX-Edit site. Over 1 Meg compressed. -- an HTML version of AppleScript Finder Guide. Doc published by Apple in 1996 written by a team with lead writer Sean Cotter. Part of Inside Mac? Over 350Ko compressed. Now, what am I missing? Maybe a brilliant short tutorial... Have'nt reexamined www.apple.com/applescript/ for quite a long time. Hope someone will do that for us. My modem access has been very poor lately. Cheers Laurent S.
