Squeak by Example

Squeak is a modern open-source development environment for the classic Smalltalk-80 programming language. “Squeak by Example”, intended for both students and developers, will guide you gently through the Squeak language and environment by means of a series of examples and exercises.


The book helps you get started with A Quick Tour of Squeak and guides you through A First Application. The Smalltalk language is introduced in three chapters on Syntax in a Nutshell, Understanding Message Syntax and The Smalltalk Object Model.
Development with Squeak is covered in The Squeak Programming Environment and SUnit. Several of the key classes are presented in chapters on Basic Classes, Collections, Streams and Morphic.
The first edition of the book concludes with chapters on Classes and Metaclasses and Frequently Asked Questions.
