PonderTalk

PonderTalk is the high-level language, based on Smalltalk, that is used to control and interact with the Ponder2 SMC. Ponder2 Managed Objects are very similar to Smalltalk classes insofar as they can be created (or in our case imported), instantiated and can be sent messages. The main difference between Smalltalk classes and Ponder2 Managed Objects are that Managed Objects are written in Java and they may be held transparently in a remote Ponder2 SMC.

PonderTalk is described in the following three sections complete with examples:
