I've found an article in the ix (german magazine) 6 June 2003 on page 128ff.
The author Cai Ziegler says the following (translated): "In nearly every
scripting language the principle of secret (I mean that you can make
something private) is broken. Because scripts are not compiled, and the
source can be read and edited, it is easy for everybody to change the
modifiers of methods from protected or private to to public."
Although the article is about the OO features in PHP I have a question to this
having squeak in mind.
Every Squeaker has the source and can add instance var accessors to the
classes whereever it is interesting for her. So why is it a problem in PHP
and not in Squeak?
