1.10 BindingDictionary

Defined in namespace Smalltalk
Superclass: Dictionary
Category: Language-Implementation
I am a special form of dictionary that provides special ways to access my keys, which typically begin with an uppercase letter; also, my associations are actually VariableBinding instances.

My keys are (expected to be) symbols, so I use == to match searched keys to those in the dictionary – this is done expecting that it brings a bit more speed.
