This is truly cool, if uber-geeky.
I've been coding of late. Working on a prototype for a new application that would, at least initially, integrate tightly into the Mac OS X operating system.
As such, I've been up to my ears in Objective C and AppleScript.
Thankfully, this discovery came at the perfect time.
It's a program, written in PERL, that provides for a command-line shell for AppleScript applications under Mac OS X. It's called "ash", for AppleScript Shell, and is available here.
It's just like the good old days. Programming in the '80s. Caveman style. Just the way I like it!
Many thanks to Hayne of Tintagel for this nice piece of work.
