What we want to do: Before we continue our study of Smalltalk "control structures", we want to learn about literal arrays or tables. Arrays will provide us a simple object over which we can iterate (or doWhile, or for/next) in the next lesson. While we are looking at arrays we will also take a moment to look at some of the things you can stick in an array: characters, symbols and strings.
What you should know before doing this exercise
What's a Literal Array? What's a Literal? What's a Symbol? What's a Character?
