Discussion 3 - William Blatt
One problem I've had in using Squeak so far is having difficulty finding helpful classes and understanding exactly how they were intended to be used. This is mostly due to the lack of documentation found in the base code. The main way I've been getting around this problem has been by using online documentation that has been posted to the newsgroups and by using search engines to try to find other resources, although I have still had some difficulty in finding everything I need.
A feature of Squeak that I have found very useful is the ability to inspect any object that has been instantiated. This is useful because it is probably the most efficient way of exploring the properties and functionality of the classes in Squeak. It is simple to invoke (Shift+I on any highlighted object), and is very valuable for finding ways to adjust object properties in our own programs.
