One of the areas that I am most excited about in switching to a Mac is the ability to utilize scripting for various tasks. My knowledge of PHP and Perl will be quite useful in creating various tools, and I look forward to learning other languages to extend my capabilities.
While some of these tools will be automated, or easily run from the command line, others will prove much more useful if they use a graphical interface. Enter Pashua, “a tool for creating native Aqua dialog windows for Perl, PHP, Tcl, Python, Ruby, Rexx and shell scripts as well as AppleScript.” It looks to be a great tool for learning the ropes along the way to developing in Cocoa and other OS X languages.
Hat tip to Mac Geekery for introducing me to Pashua.
I love the OS X community.
