A Taste of Smalltalk

A Taste of Smalltalk

This book is just a “taste” and makes no pretense of being a reference manual. It’s short enough to be easily digested yet large enough to give you a good feel for the concepts. The purpose of this tutorial is to give you a taste of programming in the Smalltalk-80 language and environment.


Our approach is to guide you through several versions of a small program in a short time. If these small examples get you interested, then larger programs will get you addicted, for the power of the Smalltalk-80 system increases as programs grow.
