Discussion 3 - Vishal Patel

Part 1:
In detail, describe a feature of Squeak that you have found particularly useful. What is the feature? Why is it useful? How do you envoke it?

One thing I found useful is the fact that you can have the code that you write color coded. The reason is because I am used to coding in an IDE and they usually add colors to variables and method names and is easier to read. To see the colors you have to click on on the last button in the browser, it will usually say 'source' and then from there select colorPrint.

Part 2:
I found Discussion 3 - Jiasheng He's discussion useful because being able to view multiple classes and their methods and etc. was something I found very useful and handy. This beats having multiple system browsers open when you are short on screenspace.

The second one I liked was by Discussion 3 - Manabu Shimobe, the Refractoring Browser, this was very handy becuase it is always helpful when you don't have to write accessors for every class variable and it is automated for you.
