Sample text

8 AppleScript: The Power of Automation Applications AppleScript developers use two applications: the AppleScript Editor and the Folder Actions Setup application. 5 included a folder called “AppleScript” inside the /Applications/ folder that contained three applications: Script Editor, AppleScript Utility, and Folder Action Setup. 6 doesn’t include this folder. The Script Editor is now the “AppleScript Editor” and is in the /Utilities/ folder; the options accessible from the AppleScript Utility are now in the Editor’s preference panel; and Folder Action Setup is now in the /System/ Library/CoreServices folder.

PDF files can be manipulated with AppleScript to suit the needs of even the most complex workflow. Scripts can add or remove pages, stamps, comments, and more. Separate files can be merged into a single file while multiple page files can be split into individual files. A script can generate PDFs, print them, and place them in a folder for human review. The content of the files can be resumes, books, instruction manuals, fact sheets, and countless others. A script can detect and process each with a separate set of business logic.

For those applications that don’t support scripting, or to access a command not made accessible to AppleScript, Apple developed System Events. This amazing scripting addition enables AppleScript to simulate mouse clicks, keystrokes, and menu selections in many un-scriptable applications, thereby allowing you to script the un-scriptable. CROSSREF See Chapter 20 for more information about System Events. Deep level of access AppleScript enables scripts to tap into many of the technologies of Mac OS X with its unique ease of use.
