I ran this program and nothing happened so I added self halts and learned
it can't even read the input file!  Yet the File List tool reads it.  Such
dichotomy in behavior might be covered by a preference?  I know MS Notepad,
the simplest editor now allows one to store a file in ones's choice of
formats.  Does Squeak have a simple choice for input treatments that works
in Win10?

"Read a Bible file, reformat for beter readability and html standards."
| inPath ootPath inFIle outFile line words |
inPath := 'C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Website\Jesus Words\Matthew.html'.
ootPath := 'C:\Users\Owner\Desktop\Website\Jesus Words\Matthew2.html'.
inFIle := FileStream oldFileNamed: inPath.
outFile := FileStream newFileNamed: ootPath.
self halt.
[(line := inFIle nextLine) notNil
words := line substrings.
self halt.
words size >0 ifTrue:[
outFile nextPutAll: line, '<br>'; cr; lf].
inFIle close.
outFile close.

It is my observation that Squeak is the last gasp uttered by a mouse when
it fears death.  It is not a normal sound they make unless they are being
eaten by a Python!   I hope the Python people don't release code that
simply doesn't work.

I too am often frustrated by code that will just not work. When I wish to
blame the libraries I use, I end up asking myself "how likely is it that
the bug is in my code, written by a single frail, weak human, versus a big
in code used every day, in anger, by thousands of people?" I am hardly
humble, but this thought does help me at least try to practice humility. It
is almost always the case that the error end up being mine.
