3.1Importing From Smalltalk

When you run Softwarenaut, it runs out of a Smalltalk "image", a full smalltalk system whose source code co-exists with that of Softwarenaut and is interpreted by a Smalltalk VM. This means that the tool has access to its own source code together with a few other thousand classes that make up a basic Smalltalk distribution.

You can import and analyze any system from smalltalk by selecting the menu option Import->From Smalltalk...

Once you select the option, you are presented with a list of namespaces that you can import. One special namespace is SN - the namespace of the Softwarenaut itself. If you load it you can analyze the system with itself.
