Thx for the explanation. I've just downloaded sources of Squeak v. 3.7
(the image) and it DOES NOT contain BytecodeGenerator (should it?)

So, I downoladed full installation of Squeak3.7 (binaries and image),
ran SqueakMap Package Loader and....ended up with dialog which happily says:
"Reading an instance of ByteSymbol. Which modern class should it
translate to? a) Let me type the new name now; b) Let me think about it;
c) Let me find a conversion file on the disk". ????!!!!!!. The system
browser poped-up with its whole majesty & glory displaying such a piece
of miracle code:


	^ PutNewClassHere

Of course SqueakMap Package Loader IS NOT installing anything any more.

Does it mean something? The image is corrupted? The sources file is
corrupted? It's a joke, isn't it?

It's becoming funnier every minute I spent on Squeak...really. Simply,
anything which I'm interested in is unusable. First Magma smart start-up
objects strangle the whole system, now GOODS Smalltalk interface calls
for enigmatic BytecodeGenerator which exists - somewhere in space. When
I politely download the required version (with this
Byte<something>Generator) - I'm expected to find a class for a symbol
?????? It's a joke for sure but I do not have enough sense of humor...

So, my question is still valid: WHERE IS the BytecodeGenerator ????? How
can I install this class and its heirs on current, modest, three point
seve/eight/nine image? Somebody help me please.
