PharoCandle is a minimal Pharo distribution, currently for research purposes. It is bootstrapped as described in the paper: "Bootstrapping Reflective Systems: The case of Pharo"
PharoCandle contains only 49 classes. Those 49 classes define a whole Pharo kernel including classes such as PCString, PCObject, PCClass or PCSmallInteger. Additionally, it contains a minimal Collection library. PharoCandle classes are prefixed with 'PC' only for documentation purposes, but the prefix is not necessary for the bootstrap.
