Open the message names browser and search for compile: . You'll most 
likely find the methods compile: , compile:classified: and 
compile:in:classified: most interesting. As a quick example, execute the 
code below in a workspace, it will add the instances method myMethod to 
the String class in the category 'complie-example'.

String compile: ' myMethod ^ ''testing'' ' classified: 'compile-example' .

Note that you will have to escape quotes... I hope this helps.
