Thanks Herbert, yes, I already get a lot of help directly from Jon and
that's how I know about sockets and how to interface to packages like
OpenCV that is written in C++.  

So far it looks like the practical approach involves using an external
vision system that you interface Squeak to.  So you end up coding in C/C
++ or conceivably some other language like Python for that part of the

Maybe this question requires advanced answers and should be posed on the
dev forum but it's really a newbie question and is very important for
anyone thinking about using Squeak in a science or engineering

I'll look through the archives for this discussion.
