I've heard Smalltalk described (fairly or unfairly) as a "dying" language and
have been advised not to spend much time looking at it; C++ , my CompSci
instructor declared, was the way to go in learning marketable OO skills. In
the face of such opposition, I wonder how it is that people are investing the
resources to get an ANSI standard in the pipeline. What are the advantages of
Smalltalk over other languages...or is there a FAQ list I'm supposed to read
for questions like that?
I've noticed some international participation in the list. If ANSI gets a
standard in place, will ISO follow suit, or is that another can of worms
