      I used smart quotes in the editor; the net changed them to plain
      quotes and I didn't notice. Sorry. It's also possible to use plain
      quotes in a script by using the escape character, e.g.
      "the code \"WPPC\" represents file type."

      No, although it could be made to do so, and to walk folders too. I
      worry a little about scripts that are too-powerful, where a user
      could select all files in a folder and drop them on this script.
      Their creators and types are all changed, including the two files
      from another app the user mistakenly put in that folder. Without a
      third file of that type as a reference, the user doesn't know what to
      change them back to and so can't open them.

      That would be a good addition.
