Sorry yoda, I'm moving this to miscellaneous discussions. Technical discussions like this aren't allowed in the cafe.

What version of OS? Most *nix-based boxes will accept shell scripts, though I've never tried one on an Apple. I would also think that if you have a compiler installed, you could create small scripts in any language you the compiler will support...

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  tell application "iTunes"
  2.             activate
  3. end tell

Yeah. If you couldn't tell, I'm not an Apple person myself, but I'm sure that others on here are, or that you could do workarounds - like having a C++ script that said something like 'system("./usr/bin/iTunes");.

Of course that doesn't help you if you're actually trying to learn to script for OS10...
