Here¹s a simplistic script, Terry. It asks you to choose a specific playlist
and then creates a new TextEdit window with the playlist¹s name and the
names of all of its tracks. It would be easy enough to tweak it to include
artists, etc, if you want that info, too. It would also be easy enough to
assemble a large text file containing all playlists and their corresponding




tell application "iTunes"
    set myPlaylists to name of every playlist
    set thisPlaylist to item 1 of (choose from list myPlaylists without
empty selection allowed and multiple selections allowed)
    set trackNames to name of every track of playlist thisPlaylist
end tell

set playlistText to thisPlaylist & return & "--------"

repeat with i from 1 to count trackNames
    set playlistText to playlistText & return & item i of trackNames
end repeat

tell application "TextEdit" to make new document with properties
