Using AppleScript to make daily todos?

I've been trying to figure out a way to make todos (reminders) that recur every day (or week). iCal doesn't have this functionality built in, but it seems possible with AppleScript. The problem is, I am clueless when it comes to AppleScript and I can't get anything to work beyond very simple commands.

If someone has done this, I would be delighted to see the code. I do have some programming experience (mostly C++), so I'm sure if I saw it I would understand it right away.

I'll say the task seems very simple if I can figure out how to access the data and actions in iCal. Here's some pseudo code for what I'd do:
if(time = 00:00)
    for(each reminder that I want to recur)
        for(each reminder in iCal)
            if(name of reminder I want to recur = name of reminder in iCal)
            make the reminder I want to recur
Can anyone help me translate this into AppleScript?

Thanks in advance!
