Meaning what? The above does not address your original error, or if it does, its not precise enough for a single interpretation.

You said that all class instances are variables. Well, there are Smalltalk objects that are values.
Does the above mean you still think they're actually variables? Are you trying to say that the Smalltalk Integer instance 5 is actually a variable, even though it acts just like (is indistinguishable from ) a value? If so, that would be a little awkward, since value/variable is either/or, as you so adamantly claim.

And you've chosen to ignore my question again: What do you call the supertype of both Variable and Value?

Oh I have lots of prejudices like we all do. I'm just exercising a particular set now since your high horse is flimsy and you deserve to be taken down a notch. But I'm genuinely interested in the answer, though becoming less hopeful you'll say anything useful. Received on Sat Sep 08 2001 - 19:17:20 CDT
