    Why is AppleScript so slow? Whenever I try to do a bunch of things repeated tasks with it, it feels like it takes forever. I assume it isn't really AppleScript per se, but the underlying Apple Events layer. When I've used Mac::Glue, it's been about as slow.

    Sorta. Except it is "Apple events," not "Apple Events." "Event" in this context is capitalized only when part of a proper name like "Apple Event Manager." FWIW.

    And it's not so much Apple events, but the iTunes Apple events implementation. It's slow. Always has been. Dunno why.

    Also, I still use AppleScript sometimes for prototyping. And I sometimes use the AppleScript dictionary in Script Editor for my Mac::Glue coding.
