Apple Scripts

I have decided to start fooling around with Apple Scripts. I want to do someting relatively simple (to me anyways).

I have several midi files and MP3s. I want to have a basic script that when I click on it, it plays the midi file or mp3.

How do I get started?

TIA

Applescript

Applescript is great, almost exactly like English so try this:

tell application "Quicktime Player"
activate
open file "" of folder "" of disk ""
play
end tell

This is just what I think might work, dunno if any of this is correct or anything, but hey…

not on X

This dosn't work on OSX (just tried it), somthing to do with the way files are opened, but it *should* work on OS9, sorry about that…

BTW, I tried recording myself opening a movie and playing it. It gave me this (I wasn;t that far off!)

tell application "QuickTime Player"
activate
play movie ""
quit
end tell

But… playing it dosn't work, no idea why…
