6.1.1 Starting up Smalltalk

Assuming that GNU Smalltalk has been installed on your system, starting it is as simple as:

   $ gst

the system loads in Smalltalk, and displays a startup banner like:

     GNU Smalltalk ready


You are now ready to try your hand at Smalltalk! By the way, when you’re ready to quit, you exit Smalltalk by typing control-D on an empty line.
