About this book

Introduction

AppleScript is a high level scripting language that resides on the Mac platform. It can be used to add functionality to the Mac operating system, automating tasks, adding functions, making things easier. AppleScript has always been very useful, and with Mac OS X, it can be taken even further than before.

This book goes the extra mile when teaching AppleScript, explaining advanced topics, while not leaving behind the beginner. It starts off with the basics, such, as handing variable, loops, and commands, then goes on to teach higher level concepts such as debugging, AppleScripting with databases, manipulating PDFs with SMILE, and automating media workflow.

If you are a Mac user who wants to know the real meaning of having full control over your machine, get into AppleScripting; this book is the only guide you need to master the art!
