Hi list,

In ST-80 and Squeak 1.18 there is a class ExternalStream, which is a superclass
of FileStream. The protocol of ExternalStream includes a message padTo: bsize
which skips to the next boundary of bsize characters. Subclasses of 
ExternalStream are supposed to provide an implementation of this method.

In Squeak 3.6 neither ExternalStream nor a padTo: message exists. Which message 
should a use instead in current Squeaks?


Weniger, aber besser.
