I have a (basic) question:
What is a primitive method?
In pharo 1.1.1, we have CompiledMethod>>primitive that basically return:
0 if the method is not a primitive method
But if you execute this on i.e. Number>>isNumber or Morph>>#model compiled methods you get that these two are primitive methods. Are they primitive methods?
Other (related) question is: When I executed the expression:
SystemNavigation default allPrimitiveMethods
, I get a OrderedCollection with 5581 elements. Are all those methods, primitive methods?
Thanks in advance
