Beginner scripting

I've begun using GNU Smalltalk for scripting purposes. The more I use it, the more I like it. Scripts pass the "its six months later can I understand what I did here" test easily, and errors usually result in a stack trace or a line number so debugging is fine.

Anyway, as always with a new language it takes a little while to figure out how to read and write files, how to display integers etc. Like most people, I find examples are helpful.
