Thanks, Matt. That helped. Now I must have my copy of Frontier: The Definitive Guide around here somewhere. Never could get next to Applescript and miss Frontier. Maybe Ruby will be the charm??

    Indeed. It was Frontier that taught me that there was a better way to construct and send Apple events. And Ruby does have some features that are pleasingly similar to Frontier's UserTalk, and rb-appscript is also quite reminiscent of the way UserTalk did Apple events.
