Smalltalk for Everyone Else
by Keith Fieldhouse

You've decided to expand your horizons. You've been programming exclusively in Java (or C++, or Perl, or Ruby) for a while now. You're happy and productive, but you have this nagging feeling that you're solving problems by rote rather than thinking as creatively as you once did. Learning a new language, especially one that forces you to re-examine some of your notions about software development, may be just the ticket.

Smalltalk, an influential language with deep roots in software development practice, offers an outstanding opportunity for stretching your mind and exercising your development muscles. The only drawback is that once you try it, you may never go back. This article will help you get started.

I was looking for 'p-code', for arcane reasons.. noticed
It's too bad the .NET CLR can't support something as powerful as Smalltalk or Perl without resorting to tricks that destroy interoperability. That's the reason the Parrot project was started, and is coming along quite nicely. Once Parrot is done, you'll be able to intercall between Perl, Python, TCL, C#, Java, and almost anything else.
