Smalltalk debugger realization 8 June 2007

As I was working on adding email notification to SqueakSource commits, I had the debugger open to a method with two very interesting objects. I wanted to send a few test messages involving those objects to see what kind of information I could coax out of them. But I couldn’t think of a way to have them both open in a workspace or inspector at the same time! How could I test them out?

Then it hit me. You can edit the method here in the debugger, test them out however I want, then save the messages I want into this method, and erase the ones I don’t. It is more than what I wanted, and I had to press zero buttons. I like interfaces like that
