AppleScript is somewhat bizarre to me, an outgrowth of HyperCard's HyperTalk language (anyone remember that?), sort of a pseudo-English programming language. It's a bit mind-boggling for a dude used to C and Perl. I didn't spend any time really learning the language fundamentals but was able to slog my way to making a functional program, chipping away at it little by little with a lot of searching on macscripter.net. Trying to do too much at once and it would all fall apart. Like building a house of cards. That's not unlike my robotic coding experiences thus far, actually.
