I’m having trouble with the lack of arrays…is there a substitute…I’m new to scripting.

Also, I’m trying to unstuff stuffing bytes from a mixed stream of data types and I’m worried when I unload them from a port to check if its a DLE or ETX I will strip the value of them when I want to pull a double real, etc out of the string. Any one ever tackle this problem before? Seems you can’t call it a data byte first then create a string byte from it to test if its part of the packet idenitfier or marker. ARrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-GH!


In AppleScript the “Arrays” are lists. In this form:

{"itemOne", "itemTwo", "itemThree", "itemFour"}

and so on. There is many commands to deal with lists, You can make with it what you want…
