    I also found the file reference syntax very confusing and irritating. But then I discovered the POSIX keyword. With it, I can refer to files by their UNIX path - the way I am familiar with.
    E.g. (calling AppleScript from a shell script):
    echo "set ofile to POSIX file \"$audiofile\"
              say \"$message\" saving to ofile"
      | /usr/bin/osascript
