1.36 CObject

Defined in namespace Smalltalk
Superclass: Object
Category: Language-C interface

I am not part of the standard Smalltalk kernel class hierarchy. My instances contain values that are not interpreted by the Smalltalk system; they frequently hold "pointers" to data outside of the Smalltalk environment. The C callout mechanism allows my instances to be transformed into their corresponding C values for use in external routines.
