Hi all - well I think I am getting better as finding my way around but clearly not there yet. I have a class that generates me a SAR file from a dozen or so categories and a bunch of other stuff. I have been manually doing a fileOut on each category but want to add this to the class so it's more automatic. I followed various paths for fileOut and ended up with so many classes that seem to do the same thing like Browser, Class, PseudoClass, SystemOrganizer etc. None of which I could actually make work. I am not sure how to determine which is the proper class to use and why my attempts to use any of them failed.

Thanks again for any help.

The most easy way is do the following:
| myStuff classList |
classList := #(RemoteDebugServer Socket MailSender). "Here  I pick any class"
myStuff := ChangeSet basicNewNamed: 'BobThings'.
classList do: [:ea| realClass := (Smalltalk at: ea).
    myStuff addClass: realClass.
        (realClass methodDict) do: [: icm| myStuff  adoptSelector: icm who last  forClass: icm who first].
 ( realClass class methodDict ) do: [: ccm| myStuff  adoptSelector: ccm who last  forClass: ccm who first]].
myStuff fileOut

I add a sample of this fileOut, you must change RemoteDebugServer Socket MailSender  for you own.


Thanks for that, not sure I would have got there any time soon. I have built my SAR file now which pulls in one .cs file as opposed to many .st files. Is this doing an equivalent thing or are there subtle differences? I loaded it on another machine and it seems to work fine. One question, I have a pool dictionary that I was instantiating first in my SAR file because I seemed to need to do that. I have left that file as a .st, and file it in first, is there a better way to do that?
