Apple's CF opensource question

I'm not the man to know this... but I do like to know the answer.

I do understand AppleScriptObjC couldn't convert NSString to CFString.

But...

Apple released 5 years ago CF source.
https://github.com/opensource-apple/CF

Would it not be possible to make Framework from that source to support AppleScriptObjC

Shane or anyone...??

Regards.

Re: Apple's CF opensource question

You don't need that -- anyone who knows Objective-C could write a framework that wraps those methods in Objective-C, which is what's required for ASObjC. But it would be a fairly large undertaking, with a small audience. On the whole, scripters don't seem to like using third-party offerings.
