I want to learn applescript, essentially. Tutorials, Books, Cds W/e. They will all do. I just want to learn.
As with applescript, I just want to learn. Videos, Pdfs, w/e.
The end part isn’t really related to applescript, but it’s a similar train of thought.
I started my education with “The Tao of Applescript”. The publication date is 1994, and some of the info is outdated”lots of OS 9 era stuff”but many of the basic commands/syntax are the same. I’m sure there are more recent books that are worthwhile, but probably none cheaper; you can find it on Amazon for about 35 cents, US.
That looks like a good book. Too, bad it’s not for OS X.
Man that’s cheap though.
Have you looked at the main page for this website? http://macscripter.net/ It has all you need for applescript tutorials in the unscripted section and applescript source book, plus there’s other sections like the book/resources that would interest you.
Plus apple has the applescript language guide at http://developer.apple.com/documentation/AppleScript/Conceptual/AppleScriptLangGuide/introduction/ASLR_intro.html
I’m going to check out that books section.
I actually have the apple tutorial.
What I really want though, is a book where you don’t really have to make a conscious effort to memorize stuff.
The kind where you go through it and learn just by reading and doing the examples.
That’s why I figured I would post, you can’t really tell if the book is going to be like that without reading at least some of it.
