What is a script and how do I write one?
- A script is a set of instructions that a computer will follow in order to reach a goal
- Computers approach tasks in a different way than humans so our instructions to the computer must be programmatic
- Every time a script runs, it may only use a subset of the instructions provided
- Writing a script requires us to break down our goals into a series of tasks and then workout the steps needed to be performed. Flowcharts can help – I prefer pseudo code.
