2.4. Summary

This chapter has provided a quick tour of all the major landmarks in the world of AppleScript and application scripting, telling you what they are and showing where they fit in the overall picture.

The first section introduced the four key concepts behind application scripting: how applications represent information as objects, how these objects can be manipulated by commands, how objects are assembled into object models to make them easier to manage, and how all these structures are described in dictionaries.
