Handle the appleEvent message to respond to a custom Apple event, or one that you want to handle specially.

Parameters:

The class and ID together identify the exact Apple event that was received.

The class parameter is the event class: possible classes include aevt (for required Apple Events such as "open document" and "print"), misc (for miscellaneous events such as "do script"), and others.

The ID parameter is the name of the specific Apple event.

The sender parameter is the address of the process that sent the Apple event.

Comments:

Use the request appleEvent command to obtain the data associated with an Apple event.
