GNU Smalltalk
The Smalltalk for those who can type

The above quote is what attracted me to Smalltalk in the first
place. I've never done OOP, and I've shunned IDEs in the past. Emacs,
JOE or VIM have been *my* programming environments. So when I looked
at Squeak, Squeak/Pharo, etc it was "information overload" right from
the onset. Need to learn an IDE well to navigate & code; need to learn
OOP mindset; need to learn Smalltalk syntax; etc.

I want to learn and code Smalltalk "longhand" to begin with, rather
than point-n-click fashion. I read "Computer Programming using GNU
Smalltalk" by Canol G?el to begin with. Bombed out on the "stdin
nextLine" code, but the document was what I was looking for. Reading
in progress. I've also scanned through -- also

However, neither of the above references give me the whole picture.
I've yet to find anywhere *any* mention of keyboard I/O. Lot's of
"mouse events" etc etc, but no elementary console input stuff.

So I'm looking for a followup to the above tutorials. Something that
would show me what a complete and functional Smalltalk program looks
like in emacs. I want to try to do in Smalltalk what I've done with
Perl, PHP, Tcl, and newLisp. Anybody know where lives such a tutorial?
