  Control Your Mac from Afar

I tried this today (connecting to myself) with the [sudo osascript -e 'tell app...] command. I'm very new to applescripting and mac's in general... Do the -e's actually represent carriage returns? And are you supposed to write out "application" and not use "app". Needless to say, I had trouble. I connected to myself, but the commands wouldn't work. I'll try experimenting more later. Thanks for any help.

    If you want to use these tricks on your own machine, there's no need to connect to yourself. Just enter the commands at your local prompt.
    The '-e's are interpeted as "the next line".
    Both app and application should work. If in doubt just copy and paste the examples from this article.
