When you re comparing text objects, you may need to tell AppleScript to ignore some attributes of the text to perform the comparison or to consider some attributes that it automatically ignores To control which attributes AppleScript uses, you add an ignoring statement, a considering statement, or both to the comparison Table 5-4 explains the attributes you can use To use a considering statement, set up a considering block like this:

Default Setting
ignoring considering considering ignoring
Considering Example
A is different from a is different from o dog-food is different from dogfood "2203" is greater than "284" returns true
Ignoring Example
T is the same as t is the same as e play-pen is the same as playpen "2203" is greater than "284" returns false
punctuation
Punctuation marks considering such as , ; : + " Spaces, tabs, linefeeds, and carriage returns considering
won t is different from wont stand alone is different from standalone
can t is the same as cant no one is the same as noone
White space

AppleScript Attributes for Considering Statements and Ignoring Statements
5:
Working with Text, Numbers, and Dates
To use two considering items or two ignoring items together, use and like this:
considering case and numeric strings -- make the comparison here end considering
To combine considering and ignoring statements, put the considering statement first, then but, and then the ignoring statement End the block with end considering, as shown here:
considering case and diacriticals but ignoring hyphens --make the comparison here end considering
NOTE
You can also nest considering and ignoring statements
Transferring Text from One Application to Another
The easiest way to transfer text from one application to another in a script is to store the data in a variable from the first application and then use the data from the variable in the other application The following example grabs the text from a TextEdit document, stores it in a variable, chops it down to the first paragraph, and then slaps that paragraph into a new Microsoft Word document:
tell the application "TextEdit" set myText to the text of the front document end tell set myText to the first paragraph of myText tell the application "Microsoft Word" make new document at the front set the content of the text object of the first paragraph of the front document to myText end tell
You can also place text on the clipboard from one application and then insert it from the clipboard in the other application To place text on the clipboard, use the set the clipboard to command This command takes a single required parameter, anything, which is the data you re placing on the clipboard
AppleScript: A Beginner s Guide
For example, the following statement places the text Vital Mac Software on the clipboard:
set the clipboard to "Vital Mac Software"
To return text from the clipboard, use the command the clipboard The following statement assigns the contents of the clipboard to myClip:
set myClip to the clipboard
Try This
Using the Clipboard
In this example, you place a string of text on the clipboard, and then insert it in a TextEdit document Follow these steps:
1 In AppleScript Editor, press z-N or choose File | New to create a new script 2 Create a tell block to the TextEdit application:
tell the application "TextEdit" end tell
3 Inside the tell block, add text to the clipboard, as shown in boldface here:
tell the application "TextEdit" set the clipboard to "Essential Mac Software" end tell
4 Tell TextEdit to make a new document at the front, as shown in boldface here:
tell the application "TextEdit" set the clipboard to "Essential Mac Software" make new document at the front end tell
5 Assign the contents of the clipboard to the text property of the front document, as
shown in boldface here:
tell the application "TextEdit" set the clipboard to "Essential Mac Software" make new document at the front set the text of the front document to the clipboard end tell
6 Press z-R or click the Run button on the toolbar to run the script You ll see TextEdit
create a new document and add the text to it
7 Close the document without saving it (unless you happen to need a list of essential
Mac software in which case, start typing)
8 Save the script under a name of your choice

Working with Numbers
As you saw in the previous chapter, AppleScript uses two types of numbers: integer numbers (with no fractional part) and real numbers (with fractional parts as needed) Both integer numbers and real numbers belong to the abstract number class, though in practice the class of every number is either the integer class or the real class
