AppleScript requires System 7 and a 68020 or QuickTime.
The Scriptable Finder comes with System 7.5 and later.
- Extension Logger
Tracks addition/deletion of system extensions
Runs at startup; only checks folders with modified datestamps
- Toggle PPP
Turns MacPPP on or off
Customization features under development (will have new name)
- DA Fixer
Converts DA suitcases to System 7 format, preserving both version resources and datestamps
- DBMS Framework
Since FoxPro (3MB executables using 6MB of RAM) is overkill for many projects, I am developing my own database system entirely in AppleScript! (well, it does use a few small osaxen). This means negligible overhead, both disk-wise and memory-wise. The file format will support arbitrary binary data, and each record will have a maximum length of 999,999 bytes.
When complete, I will be distributing this as a FaceSpan 2.1 project with a sample database application.
When I got to "text clipping 45" on my desktop, I decided it was time to script a solution. This program takes advantage of Macintosh Drag and Drop, providing a resizable drop window which automatically prompts for a name (and keywords). Clippings are stored internally and can be placed on the clipboard with a few clicks of the mouse. Save and View dialogs are very Coplandesque, as I based their design on the published screen shots.
- Word 6.0 Startup Manager
GUI for the command-line startup options, plus save/restore of individual settings files. Here's a sneak preview!
I've selected some snippets of my AppleScript code and placed them here for others' benefit. Netscape Navigator 2.0 or MS Internet Explorer 3.0.x is required in order to recognize the 'charset=x-mac-roman' directive, and MSIE 3 shows the CSS styles.
I've assembled a listing of <<xxxxx yyyy>> codes and their English equivalents for many AppleScript classes and constants. This proves I have no life, but perhaps some people will find this reference useful! Netscape Navigator 2.0 or MS Internet Explorer 3.0.x is required in order to recognize the 'charset=x-mac-roman' directive.
I have recently (5/97) acquired a 1992 copy of the Apple Event Registry, and will update the page soon.
Here is a categorized directory of osaxen (not yet complete, but it's getting there...). I recommend using at least Netscape Navigator 2.0, preferably 3.0; or MSIE 3.0.x. (It will eventually work with Lynx, but only after I write some CGIs.)
