Witmani have the following code: https://pastebin.com/wJWU7yV318:11
Witmanand it dies on line 11, saying "Exception: nil does not respond to 'doInContext'"18:11
jerWitman, so i'm unable to run this to verify the exact cause, but this error would imply that there's no second argument given to the function, so no message is present in arg position 118:18
jerprobably due to the line: barry := PoorDog new("barry")18:19
Witmanjer: yes, that's the line. now that i hear it from someone else, it sounds obvious18:20
jerif you need an explanation on how the call object works with respect to argument capture, i do have those details as well18:20
Witmanthank you very much. i guess now i'll dig into the program some more on my own18:22
