    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:
    Code:
    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)
                    break
                make the reminder I want to recur
            }
        }
    }
    Can anyone help me translate this into AppleScript?

    Thanks in advance!
