I discovered AppleScript years ago. At this time, « AppleScript's Language Guide » from Apple and the app's dictionaries were all my resources. Some years later I discovered a French book available only thru the net : « Aller plus loin en AppleScript » available thru [...]
It's fine but it's dedicated to users with a serious knowledge of the tool. Yes, I write about a tool, not about a language. I don't wan't to open a polemic. I just decided once that languages are dedicated to communication between human beeings. So AppleScript's links with languages are only those which gave me the opportunity to exchange with guys like Hamish Sanderson, guys able to use some of the 24 hours a day which we are given to help other person whose knowledge isn't so extended that their own one.
« The Comprehensive Guide...» appears to me as an extension of this activity as helper.
In more than 1100 pages, it offers a synthesis of what we wanted to know at least once during our life as scripter.
The authors took the long road, the one which doesn't give to the readers a set of ready to use scripts. They explain step by step not only what to do (which would give an interesting and useful book) but mainly, at least from my point of view, explain why to do this or that.
This approach is the one used by the teachers whose name is always present in my old memory.Read more ›
