OCompletion has been released in the squeak package universe

Dear all,

I released OCompletion, my add-on to eCompletion on the squeak package  
universe. Since I am new to this, I forgot to give a category,
hence you will find it in the "uncategorized"  category. I'll change  
that for the next release ;-).

Of course, you can still install it by executing the following line in  
a workspace:

Installer squeaksource project: 'OCompletion'; install: 'OCLoader'.

Cheers and as always listening for feedback,
	Romain

Go to the directory where you put the VM and rename the UUIDPlugin
directory to something else like UUIDPlugin.bak and restart Squeak.

Why haven't you forked eCompletion instead of adding a package to it?

a diacritics free version of a string

Hi there,
I have a string that will eventually contain diacritics and, at some point, I
need to work with a diacritics free version of that string.
Anybody knows what can I use in squeak for that?
thanks

Hi Gary,

You should check with the people at Squeakland,
http://www.squeakland.org/  possibly through their mailing list at
http://lists.squeakland.org/mailman/listinfo/squeakland

They are much more oriented to educational use of Squeak, although
there is a lot of cross-pollination on the developer list too.

Re: Teaching Recommendations

But Squeakland is more about using Squeak in all forms of education.
Not so much learning programming. If I were teaching programming in
Smalltalk, I'd probably start with the Laser game (or maybe the Robots
book from Stef).

Re: OCompletion has been released in the squeak package universe

Good question. I actually never thought about it. I guess I'm shy at  
forking projects ;-).

Re: OCompletion has been released in the squeak package universe

Another good question, Damien, why would you fork eCompletion ?

AFAIK you can't do it in Squeak. At least not if you want full unicode.

RE: a diacritics free version of a string

ah, thanks for the info.
And, in case it can be enough for the moment, what would be the poor's man version of this goal?
