AppleScript tip: working with booleans

It's easy to work with boolean (true/false) variables in AppleScript. Here's an example of how you assign a boolean to a variable:

set a to true
set b to false

Then you can use your values in if/then statements like this:

set a to true
if a then
   display dialog a
end if

Okay, not ground-breaking examples, but that's the basic AppleScript boolean syntax.
