Now I'm confused.

Perhaps you could explain what you are trying to do Jerome ? I assumed that you are considering writing an/some AppleScript(s) (or an ASS app ?) (or some AS-related code in another app (e.g. iTeXMac)) which involve(s) BBEdit.

Such "deeper" knowledge would only be required for something else. Right ? (Everything that BBEdit allows you to do with AS is exposed by and detailed in the ASD. Anything else is (so to speak) off-limits.)

A "something else" (such as obtaining some of BBEdit's "AS code" would require the cooperation of Bare Bones Software. So, Jason's suggestion to contact them is probably the best one.
