it would be nice to have a Print statement like Basic had in the old days. All that would be needed is a window where this output is directed to. The output should be accumulated during the program execution. The window itself should have a boolean Show property.
I could do this on my own but I think it would be handy for beginners (pros as well) to have this facility built into the ObjB runtime classes resp. objects.
BTW: The Log command is helpful in the beginning, but I think it pollutes the system log. Regular output of an application should (in my opinion) be directed to the system log only if the user sets a certain log level for diagnostic reasons or an error condition occurs. Log feels "artificial" to me and Alert is only one shot without any memory.
what would you think of having an inline Input facility as well (perhaps inside the print window)? Some primitives would help for fast hacks or for early experiments with language features.
