Rare early AppleScript articles


(Phil Stokes) #1

I posted this to the ASUsers list, too, so apologies for cross-posting if you’re on both.

I’ve just added 14 new items to the Applescript Reference Library pdf repository:

These are excerpts from issues of Apple’s ‘develop’ magazine that were published between 1992 and 1997. Asides from being of historical interest, they contain some great conceptual background on the underpinnings of and philosophy behind AppleScript.

I thoroughly recommend them.

The added titles are:

Issue 10: Apple Event Objects and You (Richard Clark)
Issue 12: Better Apple Event Coding Through Objects (Eric M. Berdahl)
