I borrowed a book named `` Smalltalk-80: The Language And Its
and read two chapters. Until doing it, I'd never understand how it works by
some code snippets in Self manuals. You need know what is messages, classes/
objects, or blocks. (In my opinion, a block means ``program in need''.)

Off-topic: I think Self is badly named, that it's hard to find relative
in Google search service.
