I'll start it up and see if I can walk you through it.  Is there any area you are unclear about or is it just the whole thing?

The "script" page has a "hello world" that will be easy to start with.  Here's the links on that page that are a good starting point.

There are a bunch of them.  Here's a couple that might help.  The PDF is just the powerpoint part of a slide show.    Some are old so may not be worth much more than getting ideas.
