Here is the first AppleScript that I have written. Despite the simplicity of my objectives, and knowing that BBEdit was scriptable, and having looked at a few scripts before, this script still took most of a day to write. The difficulty was that although there were lots of good script tutorials very few dealt with the scripting of a text window at such a basic level. Today (20040821) Apple's Scriptable Apps page provides no script example for TextEdit :-(
I'm not resorting to Perl for this job yet. Just how different can two scripting languages be?
