How Many Objects?

Use Display It (Ctrl+D) to display the count of objects in the system. There will be quite a few.

You might ask, "Why are there so many objects here already, when I haven't programmed anything yet". Well, as we mentioned on the Welcome page, everything in Smalltalk is an object and the development environment is just a world of objects all interacting with one another. So, although you may only have a single Workspace window open there are still a lot of Smalltalk objects "beavering away" under the covers.

Remember, to get back to these experiments just choose Help/First Splash in any Dolphin tool window.
