Is GNU Smalltalk a complete implementation of Smalltalk?


GNU Smalltalk is a complete implementation of the Smalltalk language. In fact, it is a superset, since some features (regular expressions, streams, packages, namespaces, etc.) were absent or more limited in the original Smalltalk-80 specification (the Blue Book).

GNU Smalltalk also includes a graphical Smalltalk environment. The quality of the environment is low compared to modern IDEs (including other Smalltalk dialects); however, this does not hamper GNU Smalltalk's main intended utilization as a scripting language.
