HyperTalk is a high-level programming language used in conjunction with Apple Computer's HyperCard hypermedia program. HyperTalk is generally considered to be a scripting language and is fairly similar to written English. HyperTalk uses commands that are very similar to those used in the Macintosh Toolbox, which is the API used to call the kernel of the classic Macintosh operating system (MacOS). HyperTalk uses a logic structure similar to the Pascal programming language.
