Scripting Question


What's the difference between a KScript and a Shell Script?

I want to write a script to modify a program file. I am learning about scripts and find that in the K1000 we have two types of scripts. I'm not sure which type of script to use. This is why I ask, what's the difference between a KScript and a Shell Script? 
Answer Summary:
A Shell Script is basically just a blank piece of paper that allows you to write your own commands in for .bat, .vbs, or .sh. I use this sometimes when I need something quick and dirty but I typically try to work with the KScripts as they have built in logic test operators

A KScript allows you to use the built in Check then Do sequences; lots of built in operators like "run a script" or "unzip a file" that you basically just complete the form and you are good to go.
