  • AppleScript for me is like Python. It looks deceptively simple to program in, so it started to suck me in. Then I discovered that in order to write that easy-to-read code, you had to learn a lot of VERY HARD rules and exceptions.

    I'd rather program in Perl, where there are so many ways to do it that it looks deceptively hard to learn to do, but actually turns out to be quite easy.
