This book contains the essentials for getting started with the JMP Scripting Language (JSL), which will enable you to create and use scripts to process various tasks during a single execution. Divided into two distinct sections, the first section of "Jump into JMP Scripting" includes JSL topics that are explained in an easy-to-understand style that is based on the extensive experience of Wendy Murphrey and Rosemary Lucas. Each topic includes step-by-step instructions and plenty of code examples. The second section of the book includes many examples of how to perform specific tasks in JSL. Using a unique question and answer format, each example answers a question with a script sample. In addition, many examples include a discussion section to explain functions in detail or to provide additional references. The goal is to make learning JSL easy and maybe a little bit of fun along the way.
