OK. Then just show us some of your source code so we can figure out what you
are trying to do.

yes, it is my first, but i understand all of the classes, etc.  I want to
make an expandable cryptology system that will have other classes with
certain methods to control the framework, or base class,  its just fancy

I've taught Smalltalk to a lot of people.  Based on that experience, I
think you are heading in the wrong direction.  You probably shouldn't
be talking about modules, but about classes.  You shouldn't think 
about a module that runs other modules.  Further, classes are objects,
so you usually don't pass names of classes around, but the classes

Is this your first Smalltalk system?
