Basically you should try to avoid to fileout and file in all the time.
The code browser is there to help you, shout the syntax editor can  
help you to find mistake.
Writing Smalltalk in VI can be painful.

I suggest you to:
	- save your image
	- save the category doing a fileout
	- use Monticello and save a package
but work with the tools

have a look at my videos they show all the steps to do one by one.
