Still he might have told them except he was sure? Still he _might have_ told them except he was sure, sooner or later, that they would want to take him away from the hotel. Source: The Shining Hi. Does the "might have told" express "open future possibility", as in "By the end of this year I might have saved some money."? Or does it imply a condition ----- "if he had not been sure sooner or later, he might have told them"? Thank you.

"Might + Present Perfect (have told)" is used to express the fact that happened in the past but the speaker is not sure that this fact really took place. He might have told them means he possidly told them but it's not the 100% true, maybe he didn't tell anything.
