How to get Visual Works up and Running on a Mac and Basic Tips - Alexa Kaminsky
To get started go to the cincom website and dowload smalltalk
Next click on products, products: VisualWorks, then VisualWorks: Download
Click on the Net Installer option to download VisualWorks
Click on the Mac OSX version and it will automatically start downloading VisualWorks
Drag the VisualWorks Application into the application folder
You will find the Installer for VisualWorks in your application folder under the name InstallMacOSX
Install the Typical Installation and follow the downloading steps
Once VisualWorks is downloaded you will find it in your home directory under the folder vw7.7nc. Open that folder
Now open the bin folder
Next open the Macx folder
Then double click on the visual application
Once VisualWorks loads, it will ask you what image to load. For now you want to load the visualInc.im. The image folder is within the vw7.7vc folder
Welcome to VisualWorks! Now to set up the image you will always be working in. Go to file and then save image as
Name this image working. Everytime you open up VisualWorks now you will pick the working.im instead of visualInc.im
Now I will show you where the most important things in VisualWorks is. Go to Browse and pick System.
Here is where you will do almost all of your coding for this class. Know and love this window well
Close out of the System window and go to Tools and then to Workspace
The workspace is where you can test pieces of code and and run some code
Lastly go to System and then Parcel Manager
The Parcel Manager is where you will download additions to VisualWorks like being able to make graphs in your UI or color code your code.
If there is one piece of information that I can give to anyone is that get a great group. Not just a group that can code but a group that you can also have fun with, go on adventures with, and try new things. You spend a lot of time together and you have to really enjoy being in your groups company.
Shout out to Snowpocalypse!!
