This task-based, visual-reference guide has been fully revised and uses step-by-step instructions and plenty of screenshots to give beginning and intermediate scripters what they need to know to keep their skills up-to-date. Readers can start from the beginning to get a tour of the programming language, or look up specific tasks to learn just what they need to know.
