XML and Property List Features of Tiger?

I haven’t been able to find any documentation or information explaining how to use the new property list and XML tools that come with AppleScript for Tiger? Is there a dictionary or example somewhere that I’m missing?

I need my plists!

The dictionaries are part of System Events.


From the way I’m reading this, is it true that there’s no (easy) way to save a property list file or xml file, you can only read them?

Check this thread for more robust tools:

I can’t immediately answer the question about writing new xml/plist files, but you can certainly modify existing ones using these suites. Like:

tell application "System Events" to set the value of property list item "AlwaysShowTabBar" of property list file ((path of preferences folder) & "com.apple.Safari.plist") to false
