Please can someone explain the behaviour described below?


I wish to create a subclass of FloatArray for a dynamic system simulation.
When creating the class with #subclass: the method is automatically changed
to #variableWordSubclass: as follows


FloatArray variableWordSubclass: #DynamicVariable


That is fine. But when I wish to create an instance


dv2 _ DynamicVariable new: 2


I get an error telling me that #new: is not understood. However #new: is
understood by the superclass #FloatArray. Why?


And, by the way, the method #variableWordSubclass cannot be found with
Method Finder. Why?


Many thanks in advance.
