parse problems

more technical problems.

  • how to trasform a string “3* 20” into a numerical output ?
  • how to tell launchd to start every 2 hours ?
  • how to catch and get original paths of symbolic links in a directory ?

Well, the first one is easy, Joy:

set tEq to "3 * 20"
set Ans to run script tEq

Next: has a place to enter a repeat time. Use that to create your xml for launchd.
