Many people have already asked me where they can learn more about AppleScript. This document is an attempt to head off those questions and provide a one stop shopping area for important AppleScript links. While I try to answer all questions, I don't know everything and there are many people who know specifics that I don't, particularly about certain scriptable apps, like FileMaker and Quark. I've never done much scripting in either of them and you would get a much better response by asking the MacScripting mailing list than asking me.
There are a few books about AppleScript. All of them can be acquired from any reputable computer book store, such as Computer Literacy, while the Apple books can be found on line.
In addition, the entire AppleScript Programmer SDK and runtime has been placed on Apple's servers, free for the download.
There are a number of Inside Macintosh volumes on line. The one we are interested in: Inside Macintosh: Interapplication Communication is available.
There are also a number of Develop articles that are worth reading also. You can find a summary of scripting articles here: Develop IAC Articles
These links take you to places where AppleScript questions can be answered.
Here are some links to web accessible databases with AppleScript mailing list archives. If you think it's been discussed before, check these out first and you're likely to find your answer before asking your question.
And don't forget, MacOS Rules!
