Attention all HyperCard users! Whether you are just a browser or already scripting, this is the book you'll need to learn how to really have fun with HyperTalk. Cooking with HyperTalk 2.0 is so chock full of ideas that anyone who uses HyperCard will benefit from it.

HyperTalk's creator Dan Winkler collaborates with Macintosh expert Scott Knaster to show you how to get the most out of HyperCard 2.0 by using the power of HyperTalk.

Each of the hundreds of scripts in this book is explained in line-by-line detail. You can simply use these scripts—a library stack makes them easy to access— or you can study them and fully understand them, unlocking the techniques that will enable you to write your own scripts. The book also contains whole stacks that you can use for practical applications, for aimless fun, or as another rich source of scripts. Every script listed or discussed in the book is included on the accompanying disk.

Cooking with HyperTalk 2.0 is filled with recipes for:

The disk contains all the scripts from the book, plus stacks that demonstrate graphics, animation, speech synthesis, and encryption. Experiment with Robin's Paint Box, AutoPainter, HyperGlyphics, Black Dog, Flowfazer™ Demo, and the rest, and start Cooking with HyperTalk 2.0!

Dan Winkler is a senior software engineer at Apple Computer and is responsible for the continuing development of HyperTalk. Scott Knaster is also an engineer at Apple and has written several books on Macintosh programming.

All stacks require HyperCard 2.0 or later.
