Smalltalk starter package (giving up)

Postby mikevdg » Wed Nov 23, 2011 10:22 am


I've written a starter package for Smalltalk, attacked to this post. However, I'm giving up work on it.

This is based on Squeak Smalltalk 4.2 (the current version available from It works okay with the python tools except for a trivial bug: food needs to be removed from the map. I fixed this bug last night but then lost the changes somehow.

However, I tried setting up a "server" version of Squeak for inclusion into the competition's VMs, and Squeak requires write access to a "changes" file (which, for the competition, would be in /usr/local/squeak/Contents/Resources/) in order to read in code, compile it and run. To me, this is the last straw; I've dodged too many issues trying to get this to work and I'm giving up.

If anybody else wants to fix it up and deploy it, be my guest.

Smalltalk starter package for the Google AI competition ("Ants", 2011).

It's not 100% real smalltalk, but you might be able to make things work using a JavaScript-based smalltalk on top of node.js
