AppleScript is Apple's native scripting technology. It enables users to directly control applications and parts of the Mac OS by creating English-like scripts. Developers can make applications scriptable--that is, capable of performing operations or returning data in response to Apple events. Applications can also execute scripts and send individual Apple events to take advantage of features of other applications.
