VBScript Language Elements

Although VBScript is not as flexible as C++ or Visual Basic, it is quick and simple. Because it is easily embedded in your Web pages, adding interactivity or increased functionality with a VBScript is easy—a lot easier than writing a Java applet to do the same thing. (Although, to be fair, you can do a lot more with Java applets.) This section covers some of the nuts and bolts of VBScript programming.

A full language reference for VBScript, as well as Microsoft's tutorial for VBScript programming, can be found at the Microsoft Windows Script Technologies Web site at http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/ (see Figure 32.1).
