You're right Rick,
that's how I proceeded to learn, first by looking closely at existing
scripts to get the most useful routines and then modifying them a bit. I'm
still at beginner's level but some scripts help me already a lot
(BookClearChangebars at book level and SaveBookasMIF, really helpful as
first step of a localization process (FM -> MIF)).
You can feel it's really a powerful tool.
