Does anyone know of a hypertalk <=> sql translator? I am learning SQL and would really appreciate if such a thing existed to build queries because its syntax is unfamiliar to me.

Thank you.

I'd be very surprised if such a thing existed. SQL is a language based on database tables, HyperTalk is a language based on HyperCard objects. XFCNs and XCMDs that manipulate SQL databases probably exist (Frederic Rinaldi?) but that's a very different thing.
