If I specify nothing in the robots.txt, what does the bot index? Say I have a directory /scripts/ which contains the action scripts of my forms (but my website does not link to any file in this directory via anchor), would I have to put that under disallow? How about a directory that contains php functions?

robots.txt was created to stop search engines from getting pages that have linked but access requires sign up or something else. Or the site owner doesn't want his page on search engines.
Seconds, search engines only read the output of the file (so, php, asp, html, or whatever) will be the same for search engines. So, if your script files don't output anything, nothing will be spidred.
