  • Cocoa's got some base AppleScript functionality built into it, and as far as I can tell, pretty much any Cocoa app will do basic AppleScript for free.
    • Yeah, that's all fine; the point here is not whether it can do it, or how it does it, but how I can get the AppleScript terminology information from it. Apparently for Cocoa apps, I have all the work done. But for other Cocoa things, like Cocoa-based Scripting Additions, I am not sure yet; I did look at some of Apple's Cocoa docs, and didn't see much. I am sure there's more there; that part's down lower on my list anyway, though.

      If you do come across docs that discuss where on the filesystem the AppleScript terminology is stored for a given Cocoa or Carbon binary, how it is parsed, what format it is in, or how to retrieve it from something else (a la Script Editor), please do let me know. As noted, I mostly have a good handle on it so far from what I can tell -- as I already have a working glue for a Cocoa app! -- but there are still some blind spots.
