House o' HyperCard
(OK, so it's turned out to be more like "Script of the Fiscal Quarter". I'll see what I can do about that....)
This page is a place for a few of my favorite code snippets and tools for scripting and stack creation. I've gotten an enormous amount, in knowledge, advice, and friendship, from the HyperCard community over the years, and this is a way of giving a little something back. From time to time, I might also put up pointers to cool and useful things I come across.
(Still) Coming Real Soon Now: HyperTalk QuickRef AppleGuide
Updated HyperTalk QuickRef, version 2.4|
A fast, slim alternative to the HyperTalk Reference stack, including the Darn Cute Interactive ASCII ChartTM. Newly updated, includes the new QuickTime language elements.
The SlickScripts Competition|
A guest script this fiscal quar- er, this month: presenting the winning entry in the HyperTalk mailing list's first SlickScripts competition, written by Jonathon Ashwell. The script powers a self-contained field that automatically indexes any stack it's pasted into.
From HyperTalk 2.2: The Book, by popular demand, the formal grammar of HyperTalk, in Backus-Naur form. (Serious geek territory; kids, don't try this at home.)
Find It Again, Sam|
A scripted Find (or any other command) that repeats when the user presses Return.
Text Collector Palette|
A self-contained palette that implements an accumulative clipboard - copying and cutting text adds it to the Collector, instead of wiping out the previous contents. Demonstrates multi-line palette scripts, too.
Secrets of the Palette Command|
A fun adventure for the whole family!
The HyperTalk QuickRef stack|
A fast, slim alternative to the HyperTalk Reference stack, including the Darn Cute Interactive ASCII ChartTM
