Hi Levente, hi Christoph --

Hmm... from a key-input handling perspective, I would prefer #return and #enter over #cr or #lf etc. Hmm.... there can only be one printString/storeString. If we would change #constantNames again ... I would have to duplicate it to make the virtual key stuff look as expected again.

About this test. I think it makes no sense to compare strings but the resulting objects. The test should test the storeOn:/evaluate: dualism. Older storeStrings can easily be tested as well.

self assert: Character cr equals: (Compiler evaluate: 'Character cr').

self assert: Character cr equals: (Compiler evaluate: 'Character return').

self assert: Character return equals: (Compiler evaluate: 'Character cr').

self assert: Character return equals: (Compiler evaluate: 'Character return').

The current results of #storeString should not matter.

Hi Levente,

good question, I had assumed Marcel had also thought this through when renaming the constant. We cannot have two printString representations for the same character, obviously. In his original patch, Marcel wrote:

Yes, the test passes now, but it marks a potentially breaking change
because it affects #printString and #storeString.
Do we really want it to be printed as Charcter return instead of Character cr?
If yes, why return?
Why not carriageReturn?
