[HC] Porting HyperTalk Apple Event to AppleScript
(Msg 1 of 1)

Hello to all,
It is heart warming to read a living HyperCard community.
As incredible as it may seems, HyperCard do still plays an essential part in my work.
I wish to find a way to keep the data and the scripts alive.
I wonder, if someone may guide me about the following issue, if it still possible and if yes, to tell me where I can find the information how to do it?
The following HyperTalk script lines actually works within SuperCard:
put "eppc://user:email@example.com/HyperCard" into ServeurAE
request "findFilm(ECF("& quote & NoPhoto & quote &"))" from program ServeurAE
When the functions "FindFilm(ECF(NoPhoto))" are sent with text variable "NoPhoto" to a remonte machine running HyperCard under OS X Tiger with Classic, it returns the full text content of the matching card.
If I remember well, it was possible to do the equivalent with AppleScript, but I can't remember how. And I have never done it.
If is possible, I wish I can do it from AppleScript under OS X Maverick.
Can anyone help or refer to where I might find the answer?
