Description:


Enough to support the SourceCodeSaver PD goody ....


ST-80 compatibility class.
This may be required when existing code has to be ported to ST/X;
however, it may not be complete and more protocol may be added in the future.
The code here was created when public domain code (Manchester) had to
be ported to ST/X and missing classes/methods were encountered, and code added
by reasoning 'what the original class could probably do there'.

This is currently not used by ST/X itself.

This is an additional goody class; therefore:

Class protocol:

instance creation
o  on: aStream


Instance protocol:

accessing
o  files
return the value of the instance variable 'files' (automatically generated)

o  files: something
set the value of the instance variable 'files' (automatically generated)

o  targetFile

fileOut
o  fileOutMessages: collectionOfMessageSelectors for: aClass

misc
o  timeStamp

stream messages
o  cr
(comment from inherited method)
append a carriage-return to the stream.
This is only allowed, if the receiver supports writing.

o  nextChunkPut: someString
(comment from inherited method)
put aString as a chunk onto the receiver;
double all exclamation marks except within primitives and append a
single delimiting exclamation mark at the end.
This modification of the chunk format (not doubling exclas in primitive code)
was done to have primitive code more readable and easier be edited in the fileBrowser
or other editors.
It's no incompatibility, since inline primitives are an ST/X special
and code containing ST/X primitives cannot be loaded into other smalltalks anyway.

o  nextPut: aCharacter
(comment from inherited method)
put the argument, anObject onto the receiver
- we do not know here how to do it, it must be redefined in subclass

o  nextPutAll: aCollection
(comment from inherited method)
put all elements of the argument, aCollection onto the receiver.
This is only allowed, if the receiver supports writing.

o  nextPutAllAsChunk: someString
(comment from inherited method)
put aString as a chunk onto the receiver;
double all exclamation marks except within primitives.
This modification of the chunk format (not doubling exclas in primitive code)
was done to have primitive code more readable and easier be edited in the fileBrowser
or other editors.
It's no incompatibility, since inline primitives are an ST/X special
and code containing ST/X primitives cannot be loaded into other smalltalks anyway.

o  nextPutChunkSeparator
(comment from inherited method)
append a chunk separator character

o  space
(comment from inherited method)
append a space character to the receiver.
This is only allowed, if the receiver supports writing.
