How to check out and try PySqueak

To try it out, you need subversion and Python version 2.4 or 2.5. You first have to check out PyPy:

    svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/dist pypy-dist

Warning, this checkout is relatively big. Another way if you only want to look at the sources is via https://codespeak.net/viewvc/pypy/dist/pypy/lang/smalltalk/.

The Smalltalk code is in the pypy/lang/smalltalk subdirectory; you can run its tests (72 so far) as follows:

    cd pypy/lang/smalltalk

Happy poking around :-)

This is amazing progress, congratulations!

The code looks like what I would love to see one day in a Squeak-on-Squeak implementation done in the same fashion. It's encouraging.

Anyway, it looks like I'll have to learn some more Python after all... ;-)
