       Smalltalk - the GNU Smalltalk virtual machine

       GNU Smalltalk usage:

	      gst  [  flag ... ] [ file	... ] gst [ flag ... ] { -f | --file }
	      file [ args ... ]

       Short flags can appear either as	-xyz or	as -x -y -z.  If an option  is
       mandatory  for a	long option, it	is also	mandatory for a	short one. The
       currently defined set of	flags is:

       -a --smalltalk-args
	      Pass the remaining arguments to Smalltalk.

       -c --core-dump
	      Dump core	on fatal signal.

       -D --declaration-trace
	      Trace compilation	of all loaded files.

       -E --execution-trace
	      Trace execution of all loaded files.

       -g --no-gc-message
	      Do not print garbage collection messages.

       -H --help
	      Print this message and exit.

       -i --rebuild-image
	      Ignore the image file; rebuild it	from scratch.

	      Rebuild the image	file from scratch if any kernel	file is	newer.

       -I --image FILE
	      Instead of `', use FILE as the image file, and ignore  the
	      kernel files' timestamps.

       -K --kernel-file	FILE
	      Make FILE's path relative	to the image path.

       -q --quiet --silent
	      Do not print execution information.

       -r --regression-test
	      Run  in  regression  test	 mode, i.e. make printed messages con-

       -S --snapshot
	      Save a snapshot just before exiting.

       -v --version
	      Print the	Smalltalk version number and exit.

       -V --verbose
	      Show names of loaded files and execution stats.

	      Execute as a `process' (from within Emacs)

       --kernel-directory DIR
	      Look for kernel files in directory DIR.

	      Don't read user customization files.

       -      Read input from standard input explicitly.

       Files are loaded	one after the other.  After the	last  one  is  loaded,
       Smalltalk  will	exit.  If no files are specified, Smalltalk reads from
       the terminal, with prompts.

       In the second form, the file after -f is	the last loaded	file; any  pa-
       rameter after that file is passed to the	Smalltalk program.
