Adding to what others have already said ...

A new, labelled Transcript window can be opened from code.

ts := TranscriptStream new.
ts open. "opens window with default title of Transcript".
ts openLabel: 'My Transcript'. "opens window with custom title"
ts show: 'Hello'

Another option for displaying small amounts of output is to use "self  
inform: some-string" which displays a string in a dialog.
