Automator in OS X Leopard


Automator in Leopard is a visual scripting environment for the mac that allows you to see the api’s already exposed by the programs that you have installed and manipulate them by building a workflow and editing the settings of the workflow in sequential dialog boxes.  Your scripts can be saved so that they’re available from a right click menu when you select items in the finder that you want to manipulate.  Very easy to use and quite powerful.  You can do the same things in windows if you know vb scripting pretty well, but I don’t know of any tool from Microsoft that makes it this easy.
