Thank you very much for your fast response.
I have a given program (written in squaek) and i want to automate the program from an other program (e.g. Excel). Is it possible to expose interfaces of classes (written in squeak) like it is possible with MS-COM or CORBA or do i have to write an adapter (maybe via TCP/IP?) for such reasons. I want to automate this program (call Squeak methods) with an other program written in VB6, and i wanted to know if there is any simple way to 'communicate' with squaek programs.

Best regards
Uwe Löw

Not easily. Not impossible either, though - what kind of API do you  
have in mind? Knowing a bit more about the problem might help giving  
a more specific answer.
