1.9 Behavior

Defined in namespace Smalltalk
Superclass: Object
Category: Language-Implementation
I am the parent class of all "class" type methods. My instances know about the subclass/superclass relationships between classes, contain the description that instances are created from, and hold the method dictionary that's associated with each class. I provide methods for compiling methods, modifying the class inheritance hierarchy, examining the method dictionary, and iterating over the class hierarchy.
