Source code repository with Cincom Smalltalk, an interesting topic, is to revisit old languages and see what
Smalltalk is a delightful small language, with the idea of the grammar can fit on a business card, also they

Small information on what to do to install and manage Smalltalk source code.
# Install PostgreSQL on a compatible machine
$ apt install postgresql -y
# Become the postgres user and create a database and a user called BERN (its quite a famous city)
$ su - postgres
(as postgres) # createdb
# createuser -d -a- P BERN
Now turn your attention to your Smalltalk, you would need to run
and use the following details from before:

Password: the one you typed in when creating BERN
You should be able to connect now and store your source code.

You must trust your network and change the file /etc/postgresql/main/10/pg_hba.conf, use
as last parameter
Your connection string will be something like this:
