Second error : I'm familiar with C, Java, PHP, VB, ... and Common Lisp !

I miss something then. Cause in  Squeak I first "edit" my source code,
then "compile" the  method, the run the code,  and sometime debug. The
difference is in  the fact I compile methods and not  files. But it is
the same in Common Lisp.

As in Common Lisp.

As in Common Lisp.

I'm not familiar  enough with Ruby, but I think you  can work the same
way as in Commont Lisp. This two languages are file based however.
