AppleScript

An English-like command language for the Macintosh introduced with System 7 Pro and supported in Mac OS X, even though OS X has its own Unix commands. Like the command lines and batch files in DOS/Windows, AppleScript is used to invoke numerous functions and automate repetitive tasks. A variety of pre-written scripts are available, and Apple's Script Editor is used to write one's own.
