TitleDesigning a modern scripting language
PublisherUniversity Video Communications
DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"This lecture focuses on the problem of creating a scripting system to be used for automating, integrating and customizing the computer services supplied by networked applications and operating systems. Existing solutions are typically monolithic: they do not support scripting services that can be used throughout the system. The design of AppleScript illustrates how to overcome these problems by combining dynamic object-oriented language and database technologies in a distributed, internationalizable scripting system."
