19. Scripting

Chapter 19. Scripting

When ColdFusion 4.0 was released, it introduced a new server-side scripting language called CFScript. CFScript is similar in appearance to JavaScript and allows you to write sections of code in your templates using a more concise format than tag-based CFML. CFScript isn’t meant to replace the CFML language; it just provides you with a choice of styles for coding your pages. ColdFusion 5.0 introduced developers to user-defined function. Now, in ColdFusion MX, CFScript adds the ability to trap and handle errors with try/catch constructs. Those used to programming in JavaScript will find the CFScript constructs quite familiar. This chapter covers everything you need to know about the CFScript language, along with examples.
