Ah, I see. So those comments are probably out of date?

I discovered that procedure whilst poking around the
other day. Although, I wasn't sure whether that was
the easiest way to do it. I was hoping there was a
more direct way to create a method or class upon
running one's first broken tests.

That's sounds like exactly what I'm in search of.

Stable is good. Small is good too.

In a similar manner, is there a way to create a new
class with this package?

By the way, of those doing test driven development in
Squeak do you run a test on a non-existent class
before creating that class? Or do you first create the
class then test it?
