Applescript to print PDFs from Rev?

Firstly, make the script work in the Script Editor before trying to put 
it into Revolution.
A couple of ideas:

1. try using:
repeat for each item f in filelist
	select f
	print selection
end repeat

2. In the literal list, you have the word file. Does the variable 
contain the word "file" for each item? If so, how about using the word 
"alias". I don't know if it will make any difference, but it would be 
worth a try.
