(* AppleScript -- Apple MacOS scripting *)
type OSAerr = int
exception AppleScriptErr of OSAerr * string
val as_compile : string -> OSAID
val as_dispose : OSAID -> unit
val as_run_script : OSAID -> string
val as_run_text : string -> string
These Mac specific functions provide the capability to compile
and run AppleScript programs.
The exception AppleScriptErr is raised in the event of an error.
[as_compile str] compiles AppleScript source code text, returning
an abstract token of type OSAID. This token may be used to run
the script. The token may be used repeatedly until it is returned
with as_dispose or until mosml exits.
[as_dispose tok] disposes of the resources associated with the
OSAID token so that they may be reused by the AppleScript system.
AppleScriptErr is raised upon any attemp to reuse a disposed token.
[as_run_script tok] runs the script associated with the token.
This typically involves AppleEvent communication with other
programs running on the Mac, or networked Macs. The AppleScript
result is returned as a string.
[as_run_text str] compiles and runs the AppleScript source code text,
disposing all resources allocated in the process, and returns the
AppleScript result as a string.
