CLDT stands for 'Common Language Data Types'
In IBM Smalltalk there are other abbreviations of that kind:
CLIM Common Language Implementation
CPM Common Process Model
CFS Common File System
CG Common Graphics Subsystem
CW Common Widget Subsystems
CP Common Printing Subsystem
EW Extended Widget Subsystem
I think CLDT, CLIM, CPM are taken form the ANSI standard.
The documentation for IBM Smalltalk Vs. 6.0 can be downloaded from
IBM Smalltalk Programmers Guide (2.8 MBytes in PDF)
This documentation does not say what is ANSI and what isn't,
so it is possbily not very helpful.
