Hi everybody.
I've got just one question. What does the word meta-programming mean. I 
read the croquet manual to which is an article of Alan Kay added ( 
Title:  "Is "Software Engineering" an Oxymoron?").
He writes : " [...] we need a system whose features are "mostly meta". 
[...] Part of the real problem of today's software is that most 
programmers have learned to program only a little, at the surface level, 
and usually in an early bound system. [...]".
I roamed around the web but the question still remains in my head: "What 
is it"?

Thank you
