GNU Smalltalk <-> GNU Objective C runtime bridge and STM file type

Released under the GNU GPL on Feb. 20, 2005, you can download it from

What gstobjc provides:
   Mostly transparent messaging across Smalltalk objects and
   Objective-C objects. File type '.stm' which is an exact mix
   of Objective-C and Smalltalk source in one file, see provided
   'SDL.stm' for an example of this. Emacs mode provided in
   'stm-mode.el', uses multi-mode.el (provided). See and for processing.

gstobjc's current limitations:
   Class names and selector names need to be defined on the
   ompiled ObjC side, for type information and lookup. (usually
   ObjC messaging a Smalltalk object). See #method in SDL.stm.

   Not fully tested class-to-class message sending.

gstobjc's dependencies:
   GCC with Objective C runtime (libobjc), GNU Smalltalk 2.1.7+

How to use gstobjc:
   Include STObject.m and Smalltalk.m with your compiled project,
   providing the .st files upon execution. See example-main.m for
   initialising GNU Smalltalk with the ObjC binding.

Version: 1.2

Known Issues:
   Sending messages from Smalltalk to ObjC objects could
   definately be optimised. Not every single type @encoding is
   supported, specifically structs.
