Telescript was a programming language for creating softbots, which are software agents that carry out tasks on the Internet. It was developed by General Magic in the 1990s and used to enable devices like personal digital assistants (PDAs) and early smartphones to communicate with each other without direct user involvement. By scripting Telescript commands, developers could program softbots to perform complex tasks such as retrieving information from different sources or sending notifications based on certain conditions. Originally intended for use in telecommunication networks, Telescript's concepts anticipated today's Internet of Things (IoT) and agent-based computing paradigms.
