Hi Paul,

As Rob already mentioned, AppleEvents are by
definition limited to MacOS -- otherwise there would
have been no need for the Revolution_IPC project.
It would sure be nice if Apple were to open up the
specification for the 'eppc' protocol, allowing us to
connect to the socket directly from Windows and Unix
applications and send events.
But as AppleScript probably is considered one of the
crown jewels of MacOS (and is IMHO far too often
ignored), it's ubnlikely they'll open it up the way
they did RendezVous.

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
