Ultimate object orientation, continuations and blocks/closures - the 
last is very very smalltalkish ;D

Smalltalk at: #a put: (Array new: 2)!
a at: 1 put: 'some string'.
a at: 2 put: 'some other string'.
a do: [:n| n printNl].

a=[]
a << 'some string'
a << 'some other string'
a.each{|n| n.display}


The similarity is obvious.
