Your handler has a few errors.
The path containing slashes is not what AppleScript expects
It is a good practice to use 'return varThatWasSet'
in order to send some text back to Rev,
and then be prepared to do some parsing for extra quotes, etc.
I have not worked with AppleScript in a few years so I am quite rusty,
but here is a very useful tip for finding very complete examples right
on your Mac
Go to the upper right of your menu bar, click the AppleScript icon,
Open Scripts Folder/ Open Computer Scripts Folder
An now you should be able to read through more than 100 scripts
written by Apple to interact with numerous programs.
Right-click and open in Script Editor.
Now you should be able to build your won example script syntax library.
Hope this helps,
