The AppleScript Sourcebook, a repository of information about AppleScript, on Monday announced the release of a primer on AppleScript, “AppleScript for Absolute Starters.” AppleScript is Apple’s system-level scripting language for the Mac.
“AppleScript for Absolute Starters,” a free booklet written by Bert Altenburg, is designed to teach the basics of AppleScript in Mac OS X 10.2 (“Jaguar”) in a “slow-paced” way. It’s available as a PDF file download. In the future, multiple versions of the booklet will be released to match up with specific versions of Mac OS X.
The current version of the book requires the beta version of Script Editor 2.0. The Script Editor is an application used to read, write, record and save AppleScript scripts.
