Ive done a little basic programming a long time ago, 10+ years ago and have forgotten most of it now, but that was in C++. What i need is a program to basically do this: for each and every character in string or text file depending on the character in string, copy this specific file to this folder and keep both files when the name is the same. i need it to read the string/text like normal, from left to right and top to bottom if it it read from text file i need to copy the same ~40 files (pictures ~250KB each) to a folder in a Specific order thousands and thousands of times. this is what i got and i'm lost right now. Code: set theText to "This is some text that i need a specific file copied depending on the character in this string" if character 1 of theText = "T" then say "it worked" i know what i need to make it work but all my programming knowledge has vanished. so im starting learning over again.
