A complete reference to AppleScript, the popular programming language that gives both power users and sophisticated enterprise customers the important ability to automate repetitive tasks and customiz... e applications. As the Macintosh continues to expand and solidify its base in the multimedia and publishing industries, AppleScript is and important tool on this platform for creating sophisticated time- and money-saving workflow applications (applets). These applets automate the processing and management of digital video, imaging, print, and web-based material. AppleScript is also gaining a foothold in scientific programming, as technical organizations adopt G4 CPU-based systems for advanced computing and scientific analysis. Finally, power users and script novices will find that AppleScript is a great every-day Mac programming tool, similar to Perl on Windows NT or Unix. In this reference, AppleScript programmers will find: detailed coverage of AppleScript Version 1.4 and beyond on Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X; complete descriptions of AppleScript language features, such as data types, flow-control statements, functions, object-oriented features (script objects and libraries), and other syntactical elements; and descriptions and hundreds of code samples on programming the various scriptable system components, such as the Finder, File Sharing, File Exchange, Network scripting, Web scripting, Apple System Profiler, the ColorSync program, and the numerous powerful language extensions called osax or scripting additions. The book covers updates and improvements with practical, easy to understand tips, including using AppleScript as a tool for distributed computing, a development that Apple Computer calls program linking over IP . Programmers can now do distributed computing with Macs over TCP/IP networks, including controlling remote applications with AppleScript and calling AppleScript methods on code libraries that are located on other machines. It also covers using the Sherlock find application to automate web and network searching and insights on scripting new Apple technologies such as Apple Data Detectors, Folder Actions, Keychain Access, and Apple Verifier.
