Where in the Console do I look to review AppleScript errors, and how do I interpret them?
When running the EagleFiler script, Remove Duplicate Messages, a dialog box appeared suggesting that I could review the errors in the Console app.
When I opened the Console, I did see several lines, but I didn’t see “14 unexpected log entries.” Instead I saw a very large list that seemed to be truncated. I wasn’t even sure if any of these were errors becasue they just refered to duplicates. Perhaps the truncation was due to length?
Then I poked around different parts of the Console and couldn’t get back the EagleFiler-AppleScript entries. I tried using Find > Filter using the terms “EagleFiler” and “AppleScript”, and I tried creating a System Log Query using the same terms, but I couldn’t figure out how to return to the log entries.
Now I’m not sure if I should click Ignore the Errors, re-run the script, and/or something else. Mostly, I would like to know exactly what went wrong with this particular run of the script. FYI, the Mailbox I was processing contained approximately 22,000 messages, and I expected about half to be dupes.
