A Portion of the Little Smalltalk Hierarchy

On this slide we show a portion of the inheritance hierarchy associated with Little Smalltalk, a dialect of the Smalltalk-80 programming language. In Smalltalk, the root class is named Object, as it is also named in Java. All object classes inherit from Object. This includes values such as true and false, numbers, characters, data structures, and all other types. The actual hierarchy is, of course, much larger than this.
