"Slang" is the name for a subset of Squeak Smalltalk. It is tailored
to be easily translatable to C. In Slang, the VM (Interpreter,
ObjectMemory, ...) is implemented. VMMaker is used to generate C code,
which can then be compiled - but you know this last bit.

Details? http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/2267 :-)

I don't know where to look for "getImageName" in particular, so I
cannot help you with that one, sorry. (I haven't found it in the image
I have at hand.)
