What is an SCPT file?
An SCPT file is a compiled script created with Apple's Script Editor. It is written in AppleScript, an automation scripting language used by Mac computers. SCPT files may be written manually or generated by recording actions.
Completed AppleScripts can be compiled into executable programs or run within the Script Editor application.
AppleScript was introduced in 1993 when system 7.1.1 of the classic Mac OS was released. It is built into all versions of macOS (OS X) and is utilized by end-users primarily to control applications and access or modify data and documents on the OS. However, average macOS users will never see the SCPT file.
