Hi Damien,

I noticed a little mistake on the SqueakMap page of Nile at:

In the description paragraph, you mention a bad link to the
completehierarchy.pdf. It should be (underscore missing):


On squeaksource, the links are corrects. I inform you about this because
I noticed the request 'squeak' + 'a project name' on google.com give you
first the link to map.squeak.org then some links to mailing-lists
reports (nabble.com, squeakfoundation.org, ASPN...) and rarely

| Hi,
| Nile is a complete reimplementation of the squeak stream hierarchy.
| It's based on traits.
| You can find it on Universe.
| New features include:
| - Constructors on collections like #nsReadStream or #streamContents:.
| - Better performances than Squeak for #next #next: #nextPut: and
| #nextPutAll: with Strings (you can run the benchmarks yourself using
| NSBenchmarks>>#launchBenchmarks). Thanks to Klaus D. Witzel, Mathieu
| Suen, Roel Wuyts and Andrew P. Black who helped me a lot.
| - Adds a lot of libraries based on Nile core. there are generic
| buffers, byte reading/writing methods, a thread-safe transcript
| (Stéphane Ducasse wrote it), file-based streams...
| - No more dependencies: Nile is self contained (previous dependencies
| was only for tests and not needed).
| - NSMetrics computes some metrics on Nile and the Squeak stream
| hierarchy to compare.
| - 322 tests
