Chapter 1: AML building blocks, How you can use AML: AML is an interpreted language. Interpreted languages translate each command line to machine language and execute it before moving to the next line. In addition to grouping frequently used command sequences as one task, you can use AML to prompt the user for information, validate user input, provide meaningful error messages, create your own commands, and create a menu driven interface to ARC/INFO operations. Here are some examples:
Customize ARC/INFO tools for your applications: Combine ARC/INFO tools to create your own specialized functions, Build interactive menus, Create your own commands, Enhance native ARC capabilities, Implement complex applications, and Perform modeling.
Increase Productivity: Create a user interface for your application, Reduce typing by storing command sequences in a file, Help less experienced users become productive more quickly, Provide managers with display and query capabilities, Automate frequently performed and repetitive tasks, Automate database access, and Create uick keyboard macros.
In summary, AML provides a wide variety of operations to complement ARC/INFO. The best way to learn what AML can do is use it, so buy this book and get started.

This book is written for the Workstation version of ArcInfo, which uses AML as its primary scripting language. It is not relevant to the ArcGIS 'Desktop' release which now uses standard COM based languages (VB,C++, etc.) for applications development.
