Hi Bernardo,

SlangBrowser works only with Squeak and with trunk VMMaker.

There is no separate browser to open, it just adds to the existing browser

For a browser in Squeak, the square button on the right that says "source"
is used to select various display options, such "source", "documentation",
or "byteCodes". When SlangBrowser is loaded, you get additional options for
"translate to C" and "translate inlined C". This allows you to browse the
Smalltalk VM source, and view the C version of each method at any time
exactly as it will appear in the generated sources.
