Thank you for your replies. Can anyone tell me if the "blue-book" is
the most current documentation on the Squeak image instruction set?
I think it would be wonderful to implement an interpreter that can just
read a minimal image that already works in another VM (ala squeak).
I am looking to implement something very small, even smaller than the
squeak PDA system but for Java. I wanted to be able to embed a
Smalltalk interpreter in Java servlets (web) and be able to invoke Java
SWT (http://www.eclipse.org/swt/) for desktop stuff. If it's small
enough I can maybe even compile with J2ME (no floats) at some point.
I was even looking at the PDST image file which is just source code. I
am not looking to reinvent the wheel but wanted a minimal interpreter I
can embed in Java apps. For some reason I am thinking a minimal
bytecode instruction interpreter seems to be the best approach.
Thanks again for all your help!!
