The fifth issue of the ongoing AppleScript tutorial series, MacScripter Magazine, is out. The first chapter is dedicated to the date and time object and demonstrates the different data types within a date string, performing comparisons, using Tanaka’s OSAX for easier manipulation of data, and working with date and time data in lists and FileMaker Pro, according to news writer, Kirk Klingbiel.
After that, the mag shows you how to script an email program and store email messages inside a database. The combination of the interactive multimedia format and AppleScript gives readers the option to display their own familiar (email) data inside the magazine. The examples in the Magazine make use of Outlook Express and FileMaker Pro, but scripts are provided for AppleWorks and several other email clients, Kirk Klingbiel said.
You can check it out at the MacScripter Web site. The site and mag are designed to show people how to use AppleScript.
