I tried Flow2a on my WindowsXP box, basic tests looked OK.
There is a little problem though, after filed in 'flow2a.st', a
'doit' was done:
Smalltalk unloadModule: 'Flow'
Then 'save as...' 'Flow2a.image' crashed Squeak3.2 latest update
The tests were carried out with both Andreas' VM and MobVM.
The 'unloadModule' and 'save as...' were done so that I can test
'flow.dll' built with MobVM's PDK.
Please find attached the file 'crash.dmp'.
P.S: If you want to do some tests on WindowsXP, please let me

Alrighty then... I just released Flow 2 alpha 1, a streaming
framework for Squeak. It provides a handy interface for manipulating
external resources of various stripes, and for writing services that use
them (e.g., "clients and servers"). Please see http://netjam.org/flow
This release features:
- greatly simplified installation
Download a ZIP file and file-in the sole file within. After
installation you're ready to go; you don't need to build a new VM or
even restart your running Squeak. I've only tested this with the Squeak
3.2 final snapshot. For the next release, I'll test with subsequent
- socket support (not new but worth mentioning :)
- filesystem support
- partial serial and parallel port support
- the basic framework for other planned transports (MIDI, digital
IEEE 1394 ["FireWire"], IR)
I've tested on GNU/Linux, Windows 98SE, and WinCE. If you'd like
to help test on other platforms, please let me know! MacOS X should be
particularly straightforward, since it's allegedly FreeBSD underneath (I
don't have access to a Mac). There's a Flow mailing list; details are at
As I recall, there used to be a "Squeak announcements" list. It
doesn't seem to be around anymore. Is it?
