A simple reflective object kernel

A simple reflective object kernel is a booklet that guides to build a simple object-oriented reflective kernel following ObjVlisp model.

About this book

This book explains the design and the consequence of having a self-described reflective minimal kernel such as ObjVlisp. Doing so you will learn about objects, object creation instantiation, message lookup, delegation, inheritance and much more. I love this booklet and model.
