has released “AppleScript: The Definitive Guide,” a new book by Matt Neuburg that explains “the how, where and why of using AppleScript.”
The book examines the AppleScript language from the ground up, using the same methodology you’d expect from other programming or scripting language manuals. Covered technology includes AppleScript v1.9.2 and the new Script Editor included with Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther.”
The book presumes no prior knowledge of AppleScript or programming experience, but also offers details on information that experienced AppleScript users may find useful as a reference.
The book also offers scripts that operate in different contexts; process automation for example, AppleScript Studio, CGI scripts and in combination with Perl and Ruby.
