What Is AppleScript?

AppleScript is, at its simplest, a way to record your actions when you use a program and then play them back later. By using the AppleScript editing utility, you can simply record actions as you perform them manually. Then, in the future, when you want to repeat your steps, you just play them back. Each set of actions is called an AppleScript— or a script for short.

Multiple applications can be used in a single script, making it possible for complex sequences to be carried out with little work. For example, the hypothetical script to play DVDs could also open up the e-mail application and send your friends a message that invited them to come and enjoy the movie.
