ChatGPT knows HyperTalk!

I recently had a conversation with ChatGPT and asked if it knew HyperTalk, the high-level scripting language behind Apple’s HyperCard, and not only did it know of it, it replied that it knew it. So, I asked it a couple of “how do I do such-and-such” questions, and it indeed was able to provide annotated code snippets that checked out! I am blown away, as it means the training model had included what is these days a fairly obscure language on the off-chance some nerd asked about it :)
