Hypercard stack to Mac Address Book?

How can I move all 1200 of my dad's Hypercard addresses to Mac Address Book?

Fifteen years ago my dad started using Hypercard's Address Book stack. It's time to convert all 1200 cards of it to Mac's Address Book format. I've done some research into this and while I've found apps that will *open* a Hypercard stack, I can't find something that will either export the stack into a text format or convert it right over to Address Book. Please help me, hive mind, you're my only hope.

You could write a script in Hypercard to export as text. Here's Apple's guide: HyperCard: Importing and Exporting Text, and Where To Get Info.

Another solution: Differsifier "is a simple conversion utility that exports text data from HyperCard"

Differsifier looks like it's the best option. Thank you, zippy!
