Hi Victor,

I must confess that I still tend to file out a class or even a whole category
just to browse or edit the source with vi and then file it in again if I've 
changed it.

As an excuse I offer that I worked with Unix for about 10 years and with Squeak 
for about 5 months. But then, the Unix editing facilities can be used for small 
and big files, whereas the Squeak editor does not work well for large files. And 
finally, I don't know how to save that neatly formatted text I carefully entered 
into a workspace view. Which makes editing and formatting larger documents in 
workspaces a less rewarding experience for me.


Weniger, aber besser.
