What IS HyperIt!?
HyperIt! is an Atari 8-bit program which views (plays) “Stacks” using a graphical enviornment (pictures mixed with text) and a pointer.
What are Stacks?
Stacks are files which contain from to 64 “Cards” in them.
What are Cards?
Cards are the basic structure of HyperIt!. A card is a screenful of data which includes:

Areas of the screen which can be “clicked”. Clicking is when the mouse pointer is placed over that area of the screen and the Fire-button is pressed.
