If you need help with a script ask questions. These forums are not designed them be online courses. If you need to learn Photoshop Scripting there are few resources. A book or two and a few introduction tutorials on the web. There are a few forums on Photoshop Scripting. There are also bugs in Photoshop ScriptUI that Adobe does not fix.
To JJMack & FrameExpert.
I have two apologies to make:
1. I forgot to mention "FrameMaker".
2. The incorrect command was miss-spelt!
However my original question, slightly modified, still stands. Can I assume that all the operators in the Flanagan's book are valid for the ExtendScript Editor.
Very many thanks for the prompt replies.

Photoshop CS3 Scripting added Plug-in support into scripting and even converted Photoshop old Plug-in Fit Images from a compiled Plug-in into an Plug-in Script "Fit Imaqge..jsx". So you cal writ scripts that are plug-in designed to be used in Actions. You can record Actions when you record the Action step the records the Plug-in Script step. The Script will open its dialog. When you fill out the dialog and then click it run button the script will not only run it will also record the dialog settings you used int the action step being recorded. When that step is played the script will bypass displaying its dialog and use the recorded settings. However you can turn on the step dialog by checking the step dialog box.
I have used Fit Image as a model to create a couple of plug-in of my own.
