Public void devlop() – Jurassic Park

Programming language which is used in the film Jurassic park 1993

In the 1993 film, Jurassic Park, there is a scene when the character of the saboteur Dennis Nedry set his watch whilst starting the security shutdown process on his computer. We see the code on his screen as he does so. What is the programming language? “The left-hand window shows MPW Pascal. The middle window shows an MPW script, in its shell scripting language. The top-right-hand window is an interactive MPW session. MPW was Macintosh Programmers Workshop, the classic Mac development environment.”

“The left-hand window shows MPW Pascal. The middle window shows an MPW script, in its shell scripting language. The top-right-hand window is an interactive MPW session. MPW was Macintosh Programmers Workshop, the classic Mac development environment.”

Another comment much further down the page says:

“Believe it or not, from a cursory reading of that MPW Pascal code on the left hand side is taking an input buffer, and stripping the whitespace from it, and putting the result into another buffer.

That’s a lot of code to accomplish not very much.

From the title bar, it’s a Hypercard extension.”

The code in the right-hand window seems to be a script for checking out files from a version control system.
