I know you can launch one AppleScrip from within another script. I have a slight variation on that that I was wondering about.
I have Quark printing scripts, saved as applications that are set up to accept drag-and-dropped Quark documents in the Finder. Basically it’s a droplet that accepts Quark documents and will open them up and print them.
I created another Quark script that, at the end, I would like to have it print. Rather than copy the code from the print script and put it in the other scirpt, I thought it would be cool if if could call the other script up. That way, if the print script changes for some reason, I only have to change it in the one place.
So, is there syntax to basically say in a script, “take this Quark file and DROP it on the application x”? I am assuming the main script will finish with the Quark document and close it so this should be a Finder procedure I would think. Any ideas?
