A couple of people suggested using HyperNeWS, this is available by
anon ftp from


Unfortunately it is similar to, but not the same as, hypercard -
for example, the scripts it generates are in postscript, so it's
not suitable for my purposes. Ah well.
        Still, it looks like a very nice package, and I would
recommend anyonw whose thinking about doing things with NeWS
to take a closer look.
