ARCHIVED: In Mac OS X, what are AppleScript and Automator?
AppleScript and Automator are utilities for automating repetitive tasks in applications, the Finder, and other parts of Mac OS X. AppleScript is an object-oriented scripting language with a syntax resembling ordinary English. Automator, by contrast, requires no knowledge of programming, but instead allows you to construct tasks from a library of actions using a simple drag-and-drop interface.
