Hi all,

We wish to use Squeak/Smalltalk for a beginner programming course and 
require the simplest way to get keyboard input.

First of all:-
  - is there a way in Squeak to get console input (analogous to 
system.in, in Java)? Line input would be ideal, rather than character by 
  - how would one display a text label and a text field and obtain input 
from the text field (am thinking of Morphic)

Thank you for your assistance.
