i'm using squeak but i also know they arent really squeak specific  

design type things like...

you have an instance variable you only want to allow to set once,
never again ( in that fashion its like variable binding in erlang. )
what is the accepted smalltalk way to do this? is there one?


how are the equivalent of c++ virtual methods handled in smalltalk?
what is the standard idiom for that design pattern?

those are two, i have more. is this the right forum? if not,
where would be the right forum?
