I've asked and looked... I didn't get much...
A general description is available in Smalltalk-80, by Adele Goldberg and
David Robson. It WON'T go into major detail, but it does give a good
understanding. A _rather_ simple implementation is available in
LittleSmalltalk, from Timothy Budd. It is NOT the one described in the
book above, but A Little Smalltalk, by Budd.
ftp://ftp.cs.orst.edu/pub/budd/ will get you to his directory. From there
there are three choices... I'd get version 3 if I were you. It is a
virtually bug free, albeit larger implementation (than version 4 - which
is bug-FULL)... His book describes the scheme in detail, but I don't think
that it is a very robust (compared to ST-80 or Java) method...
The last is Java, which I've been told that there is an actual FORMALIZED
paper available on the net describing the technical aspects of Java's
bytecode compiling/interpreting scheme... I haven't found it and would
like to get it... If you get any details on this, or any other
information, I'd LOVE to get it...
