You can mix Squeak with C using the primitives mechanism.
The SqueakVM is running compiled to machine languaje from the C source,
 then you can use the SqueakVM as a piece of a running C application.

I use smalltalk in an engineering software for motion simulation. Smalltalk
has been excellent for my programming productivity, but now I am looking
for computational speed. Are there examples of smalltalk taking advantage
of massively parallel processing? I would also be interested in any
smalltalk plus C, C++, or FORTRAN combination which takes advantage of
parallel processing.

Any suggestion on how to maintain the programming productivity of smalltalk
and yet achieve the computational speeds expected of engineering/scientific
software is greatly appreciated.
