Good point, Al. I don't doubt that there are some excellent step-by-step
"How to program in Squeak" tutorials out there... somewhere. But they
are not readily accessible, at least not by me. I can't find a useful
list of such tutorials, even, so I really haven't been able to get a
(10 or 12 years ago) Smalltalk. But Squeak is impenetrable for the beginner.
Most helpful would be a steering guide -- "Start with this tutorial,
then do this one, and then this..." -- with a brief abstract of the
instructional objectives for each segment.
