HyperTalk 2.2, the Book
"When the first edition of this book appeared, people called it "the book that every serious HyperTalk programmer has been waiting for." Written by Dan Winkler - who designed and implemented the HyperTalk language for Apple Computer - and Scot Kamins - a member of the original HyperCard documentation team and an award-winning author of technical books - the book was widely hailed as the definitive reference to the HyperTalk language." "Now, HyperTalk 2.2: The Book continues the tradition. This new edition has been completely revised and expanded, and covers all versions of HyperTalk through 2.2, in even more detail than its predecessor. A reference volume and a practical workbook for the HyperTalk programmer, HyperTalk 2.2: The Book covers details on every HyperTalk language element, including all the new features added in Version 2.1 and 2.2 - AppleScript support, the HyperCard Player, standalone applications, and tools for networked HyperCard applications; the formal syntax for HyperTalk; the exact forms, uses, limitations, and quirks of every word in HyperTalk's native vocabulary, including some that used to be "for Apple eyes only"; complete notes about the version history of each HyperTalk element; hundreds of new example scripts that demonstrate innovative and powerful uses for every command, function, property, and message in the language; the bugs and limitations in HyperCard and the HyperCard Player, and how to get around them; and hints on boosting performance." "HyperTalk 2.2: The Book is the ultimate source of practical advice and theoretical information for professionals and enthusiastic hobbyists alike. It belongs on the desk of every programmer who's serious about HyperCard."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
