Re: Seeking Reference Material on Certain Obscure Programming Terms

Jeff, the Smalltalk source code for Heaper and Emulsion/FluidVar/etc
is missing from the downloads from udanax, but *is* included in some
additional source code that Les Tyrrell gained.

You can download from:

which was down when I just tried, but I have included a copy of this
in my udanax-gold2java release at http://www.abora.org, look in the
udanax-gold2java/udanax-gold directory.

From Xanadu-Xpp-Basic.st

{void} passe
	self error: 'this routine is just passe...'!

There is no definition of #error: I can find, but in "standard"
Smalltalk implementations, it is defined in Object and raises an exception.
