At ESUG, we got a presentation of F-script (a scripting and Smalltalk
language with APL like vector manipulations). Philippe the F-Script father
implemented a ***really*** interesting inspector called object inspector.
See the attached file

Skipped content of type multipart/appledouble-------------- next part --------------
The idea is that this behavioral inspector does not show the instance of
object, but offers all the methods, when we click on a method it get
executed on this object and the result is put on the right. When selecting
this new object the method it understand are again displayed on his right.
The methods are sorted from the class (top) to the superclass (bottom).
this way we see always the
most specific method first.
In addtionI can select by clicking on any visual Mac element and get them
into the "object browser"
if somebody would implement such an inspector for squeak this would be
great to teach oo without violating encapsulation as right now with the
inspector. I will try but I'm really full now.
