HyperTalk 2.2, the Book

Front Cover
"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
