AppleScript in a Nutshell is the 1st whole connection with AppleScript, the preferred programming language that provides either energy clients and complicated company shoppers the real skill to automate repetitive projects and customise functions. because the Macintosh keeps to extend and solidify its base within the multimedia and publishing industries, AppleScript is the software of selection in this platform for growing subtle time- and money-saving workflow functions (applets). those applets automate the processing and administration of electronic video, imaging, print, and web-based fabric. AppleScript can also be gaining a foothold in medical programming, as technical firms undertake G4 CPU-based platforms for complex computing and medical research. eventually, "power users" and script beginners will locate that AppleScript is a smart daily Mac programming instrument, just like Perl on home windows NT or Unix.

In this well-organized and concise reference, AppleScript programmers will locate:
•Detailed assurance of AppleScript model 1.4 and past on Mac OS nine and Mac OS X.
•Complete descriptions of AppleScript language positive aspects, resembling info forms, flow-control statements, capabilities, object-oriented positive aspects (script items and libraries), and different syntactical parts.
•Descriptions and 1000's of code samples on programming some of the "scriptable" approach elements, comparable to the Finder, dossier Sharing, dossier alternate, community scripting, net scripting, Apple approach Profiler, the ColorSync application, and the varied strong language extensions known as "osax" or scripting additions. such a lot different AppleScript books are hopelessly outdated. AppleScript in a Nutshell covers the most recent updates and enhancements with functional, effortless to appreciate information, together with:
•Using AppleScript as a device for disbursed computing, a thrilling improvement that Apple computing device calls "program linking over IP." Programmers can now do disbursed computing with Macs over TCP/IP networks, together with controlling distant purposes with AppleScript and calling AppleScript tools on code libraries which are positioned on different machines.
•Using the Sherlock locate program to automate internet and community looking out.
•Insights on scripting new Apple applied sciences comparable to Apple facts Detectors, Folder activities, Keychain entry, and Apple Verifier. AppleScript in a Nutshell is a high-end guide at a low-end price—an crucial computing device reference that places the total strength of this straightforward programming language into each AppleScript user's hands.

Example text

The if __name__ == "__main__" idiom is useful when developing standalone program modules, because it allows the programmer to view help on the module just by importing it into the shell. Likewise, the programmer can use this idiom in supporting modules to run a test bed function during module development within IDLE. Loop Statements The structure of Python’s Here is the syntax: while loop statement is similar to that of other languages. while : The next example computes and prints the product of the numbers from 1 to 10: product = 1 value = 1 while value <= 10: product *= value value += 1 print(product) Note the use of the extended assignment operator appears is equivalent to *=.

In short, filter essentially keeps the items that pass a test in an iterable object. Thus, assuming the programmer has already defined the Boolean function isPositive, the code filter(isPositive, oldList) creates the iterable object containing the non-zero grades, and the code newList = list(filter(isPositive, oldList)) creates a new list from that object. Creating Anonymous Functions with lambda Programmers can avoid defining one-time helper functions such as isPositive by creating an anonymous function to pass to map or filter, on the fly.

The for loop views a file object as a sequence of lines of text. On each pass through the loop, the loop variable is bound to the next line of text in the sequence. txt", ’r’) >>> for line in f: print(line) First line. Second line. >>> Note that print appears to output an extra newline. This is because each line of text input from the file retains its newline character. 29 30 Chapter 1 n Basic Python Programming In cases where you might want to read a specified number of lines from a file (say, the first line only), you can use the file method readline.
