Re: learning to do scripting

AH yes, they're wonderful. I had them for all major apps, written so that whatever files I worked on would back up upon exit--those were the days. I might not have watched movies on my PC back then, but backing up, getting out of jams, deleting unwanted programs without a trace--dos had its advantages.

I still use batch files, because they make it easy to do things you'd want to do from a command line but editing it so you can control the output, and also using Jaws to make sure you're not typing or fat fingering something.

I never got any further than batch files, something we don't use much
these days.

I took scripting at St. Petersburg at Freedom-Scientific. Now, this
was ten years ago. I am sighted and I was lost. I am not a
programmer at heart and that is what scripting is--programming. If I
was writing a script/program to fry an egg, I would forget that I
needed to open a drawer to find the flapjack flipper to turn the egg.

I haven't looked lately, but I think a manual was once part of the
JAWS package, and I know one exists.

Just wondering how one learns to do scripting? If you can't see the
screen to begin with, how do you know what to code? Scripting
interests me, but I don't know how to get started. Are there any
resources that teach this from the beginning from a blind point of view?
