Standard is ".scpt"
Authored by: Anonymous on Nov 13, '07 12:56:11PM
A moment of research shows there's already a standard for this, so please use it.

From the man page for osascript:

NAME
     osascript -- execute AppleScripts and other OSA language scripts
Notice that this isn't just for Applescript.

The man page gives examples of script files with ".scpt" extensions. Please use that.

Standard is ".scpt"

Not really, .scpt is what Script Editor uses when saving as a 'script.'

If anything, you should use .applescript as that is what Script Editor uses by default when saving apple scripts as text.

But the first responder was correct in that one shouldn't really use an extension at all.
