Chapter 9. Scripting and Recording

AnalystTM supports scripting using the Python language. The scripting API offers complete access to the entire Analyst system and can be used to automate even the most complex tasks. Scripts are entered using the Python Scripting control.

Analyst additionally generates Python code as you perform actions in the user interface. This generated code is called a recording, is shown in the Recorder control and can be played in the Python Scripting control.

You can cause Analyst to start up and play a Python script immediately by use of a command line argument. For further discussion and an example, see “Command-line Usage and Examples”
