Framework input: aString
input := aString.
A Basic "module"
"Tells the framework what to do when it gets a method"
framework := Framework new.
The class that manages where the commands go, all of the commands, in a way
it is part of the framework.
mod = BasicModule new. "THIS IS NOT WHAT I WANT!! BAD!!!"
mod ManCommand: aCommandString.
then there are always some accessors thats just basically how it works.
One more question...How do I know when i need to use a class method instead
of an instance method?
