in reply to RFC: Porting map() and grep() to AppleScript

Thoughts?

.... well eventually you must confront the issue that this is a Perl website....not AppleScript

    It is? I thought this was Facebook... ;-)

    Seriously, that's why I posted on Meditations as an RFC. I wasn't sure if it would be welcome as a real node. Maybe consider it a form of Perl advocacy in the AppleScript world, speaking the native language in order to reach more potential converts.

      ... i thought it was twiiter :-)

      ...seriously.... the conventional way to introduce non-perl scripts here, is to wrap them in an here doc, like:

      #/usr/bin/perl my $scriptSrc = <<"EOF"; <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="APPLESCRIPT"> # all your applescript here EOF print $scriptSrc,"\n";
      ... then everybody is happy

        Indeed, you need to wrap it that way otherwise the site gets syntax coloring and reindenting wrong. You also need to add use warnings; use strict; though, or it will get rejected on the base that you'd find the trivial errors if you enabled those.
