What is this book about?
The VBScript standard has changed over time, and several new
things have been introduced since this book first published in
1999. The current standard for VBScript is 5.6. The script
debugger, script control, and script encoder have all changed and
the Windows Script Component Wizard, regular expressions, and
remote scripting have been introduced. Windows Script Host
technology has also matured over time and gained in both
effectiveness and popularity.

every stage from beginner to advanced user.
