Ok there may be a simple answer out there that I am overlooking but help with this would be awsome. Is there a simple way with applescript to end a program? I've found a way to start one but I dont know how to end the program using the script. What i'm trying to accomplish is via mail have certain commands that will start\end a certain program. Thanks for the help! :apple:

The safe way (similar to File > Quit):
Code:
tell application "TextEdit" to quit
The less safe way (similar to force quit):
Code:
do shell script "killall TextEdit"
