Techo with Shout

Found a nice tool on SqueakMap today. It is called "Techo" - something like
a multi notepad. Many thanks to Takashi Yamamiya for implementing this little tool.

Since I want to use it as a workspace script manager I created a "Shout" and "eCompletion"
aware version of it to support Smalltalk syntax highlighting.

To install in Squeak 3.8#6665 using the SM Package loader:

- install "Shout" version 4 (may already be installed)
- install "ShoutWorkspace" version 2
- install "eCompletion" version 2.0b2
- install "TechoShout" version 1

Open Techo using 'open' in the world menu or evaluate "Techo open".

Now you can create workspace scripts. Note that Techo used the first line
as the name for the script - so I typically write the scripts using a first line comment:

"001 - Open a new Techo"
Techo open.
