Branch: CURRENT, Version: 6.0.22104, Package name: squeak6-6.0.22104, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Squeak is a new implementation of the Smalltalk programming environment;
it includes among other things:
* a rapid-turn-around Smalltalk-80 compiler,
* a caching-JIT run-time virtual machine (with full source in
Smalltalk),
* large class libraries with portable data and GUI models, and
* an integrated development environment with coding tools, GUI
construction.

Squeak was developed at Apple Labs and Walt Disney and has been ported
to a variety of computers (including most flavors of UNIX and Windows).
Compared to other Smalltalk systems, Squeak has four important features:
* Portability (to Mac, Windows, WinCE, and many flavors of UNIX);
* Speed (it uses native C for compute-intensive code);
* Price (free, including all source code and the right to distribute
applications!); and
* Sophistication (full Smalltalk-80 language, libraries, and tools).
