Each project (i.e. an object of the class Project) maintains an IdentityDictionary of project parameters.

This dictionary is held in an an instance variable called


For the complete protocol to work with this see category 'project parameters' of the class Project.

A parameter is accessed through

 myProjectObject projectParameterAt: aValue


 myProjectObject projectParameterAt: aSymbol ifAbsent: aBlock

In case a parameter is absent and one wants to initialize that parameter at the same time use

 myProjectObject projectParameterAt: aKey ifAbsentPut: defaultValueBlock

Parameters are set through

 myProjectObject projectParameterAt: aSymbol put: aValue

Synonyms to these methods are

 parameterAt: aSymbol
 parameterAt: aSymbol ifAbsent: aBlock
