Documentation for Kyma Smalltalk / Capytalk?

+1 vote

I often encounter examples that use things like HostDriverInterface or acceptTextChange or Kyma readImageFile. While I can sometimes guess a solution from studying examples, I don't grok Smalltalk very well and often cannot figure out what syntax is availble.

Is there a good resource, beyond what's in Kyma X Revealed?

Specifically, the question du jour is: How do I get HostDriverInterface getFileWithPrompt: to limit it's search to a root directory (and subdirectories within) of my choosing? But I frequently have other Smalltalk / Capytalk questions.
Sadly, there's no way to do that at the moment.

The appendix of Kyma X Revealed contains a bit more information than the Smalltalk chapter. You could explore some of the resources at though you should be forewarned that not all versions of Smalltalk are the same since it is so easy to extend the language.  In particular the user interface classes, graphics, and file classes will differ.

Depending on what your project is, you may be better off doing some of the programming in a different environment and starting/controlling Kyma Sounds via Open Sound Control messages.
