Golden Software's Scripter is a program for developing and running scripts. A script is a text file containing a series of instructions carried out when the script is run. Instructions are written in a Visual BASIC-like programming language. Scripter offers many features to help you write, edit, and debug scripts. Its features include language syntax coloring, a list of the procedures defined in the script, an object browser for examining procedures available in external objects, a visual dialog editor, break points, single-step execution (including options to step over and to step out of procedures), a watch window for displaying the values of script variables, and more.

Grapher operations can be controlled through automation scripts. You can do almost everything with a script that you can do manually with the mouse or from the keyboard. Scripts are used to automate repetitive tasks or consolidate a complicated sequence of steps. Since Grapher exposes its services through automation, you can use any programming tool that accesses automation objects, such as Visual BASIC, Windows Scripting Host, and many of the Microsoft Office applications.

To open Scripter, navigate to the C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Grapher directory and double click the Scripter executable. If Scripter is not present, the installation of Scripter may have been skipped when Grapher was installed. See the README.RTF file in the Grapher installation directory for information about the installation process.
