I would call this rather "different" than "improved". I think that we would
benefit from a configurable pretty printer. There are a bunch of acceptable
Smalltalk code styles out there. There is no such thing as the one best
For example, I do prefer this style
... over this style:
Or something like that. Too much spaces. Complicated position of
parentheses. I can come up a number of reasons. Hence, I think that there
are many Smalltalkers out there, that also have their own style.
Sometimes this seems even more readable:
ifTrue: [something. something]
ifFalse: [something. something].
Sure, we have some official books that suggest some code formatting.
Personally, I would prefer a configure system where I can read and write the
code in the way I feel most productive. :-)
Just my two cents.
