[Pharo-dev] [Spy] How to inject code *inside* a method

Hi Roberto,

usually what you need is support for so called ABIA (Around, Begin, Inner and After) execution.
Brings Smallscript back to my brain which had nice support for this.

In Squeak there was AspectS, I dont know if there is a port of AspectS for Pharo.

Maybe the PHANtom project can be of help here as it claims to be a modern aspect language
for Pharo:


Hope this helps
