Although, to be honest, digging in old HyperCard stacks to recycle stuff in LiveCode does seems a bit odd.

Surely it would be better to set up some environment (Sheep Shaver, or a PPC Macintosh) to run a HC stack next to
one's production machine and recode with LiveCode to copy any functionality: this would probably result in
something that is more efficient than re-using old code.

Older versions of LiveCode can open HC stacks directly and most scripts are compatible.
