MASH (Microsoft Agent Scripting Helper) is a program, written by Gordon Scott Bell, to create animated presentations using Microsoft Agent characters. These can be exported to EXE files, or esoteric forms that can be embedded in email signatures etc.; in any case, the recipient must have Microsoft Agent installed and configured on their computer. MASH was originally paid software, but, as a result of Microsoft Agent being discontinued in 2003, development stopped, and MASH was made free, ca. 2008.
MASH scripts use the extension ".msh". The software also lists ".mas" as an extension in the dialog for opening scripts, in which case it is treated identically to a .msh file, but this is not an option in the save dialogue.
