Smallapack moved to github

After ArbitraryPrecisionFloat, I also moved the Smallapack project from to

Like ArbitraryPrecisionFloat, there is no much code on the repository, except a bit outdated Dolphin verison. The Visualworks and Squeak versions are handled with Store and Monticello in traditional dialect repositories...

Maybe it's time to update a bit the project and open a Pharo 5 branch based on Opal Compiler, but we'll see that...

Moving ArbitraryPrecisionFloat from google-code to github

I've tested the export to github button for then completed the wiki export with

It mostly worked except a few links that I manually restored, and I can say that I'm satisfied with the result.

Note that the code is still not hosted on github, but rather on or cincom public store...

There is also a fork in SciSmalltalk but for now I prefer to keep a standalone project because it has some value per se, and also to maintain code for more dialects. This will imply some extra sync burden, but it should be manageable.

Compiling Cog.Spur on MacOSX Yosemite

The MacOSX target of Squeak VM currently uses some old Mac Carbon API.

This might be a problem with a recent version of Xcode, none of which is distributed with such backward compatibility support.

However, there is at least one solution: using the shell script provided at worked like a charm for me (on OSX 10.10.4, with Xcode 6.4).

I can even compile my on brand of squeak.cog.spur (VMMaker.oscog-nice.1428 from with Apple LLVM 6.1.0 (clang-602.0.53) and get no regression against Eliot's r3410 when running the trunk tests.

That's allways good to know.
