You can also automate Illustrator tasks through the use of scripts. Illustrator supports scripts written in Visual Basic, AppleScript, and JavaScript.

The benefit to scripting, which is like writing a mini computer program, is that you can create scripts to perform everyday or not-so-everyday tasks for you. As with actions, after you work in Illustrator for a while you start to recognize the types of things that scripting might help with. In addition, remember that SVG interactivity relies on JavaScript to perform actions.
