NAME ^

Mac::AETE::App - reads the Macintosh Apple event dictionary from an application.

     $app->set_format($formatter);
     $app->read;

DESCRIPTION ^

The App module simplifies reading the Apple event dictionary from an application. It will launch the application if necessary to obtain the dictionary.

copies the suites from $aete2 into $aete.
