Re: self-VM documentation
Most of the documentation is in the papers and theses. One of the
early papers (OOPSLA 89) has a list of the bytecodes. There is a VM
reference manual included with the release documentation which has a
little information too.
The earlier papers and theses have more overview material, but they
are also more out-of-date. I'd start with the OOPSLA 89 paper by
Chambers, Ungar and Lee, and then look at Elgin Lee's thesis (which I
think you'll have to get through Stanford; we don't have a PostScript
copy). For an overview of the current compilation system, see
Urs Hoelzle's thesis.
After that, there's always the source code :->

I'm doing research for my thesis on various virtual machines. I'm looking
for documentation on the seff-VM. I 've already downloaded some papers
from the Self-homepages. Can somebody help me with other references to
papers or technical documents. I'm particulary interested in the op-codes
and a description of the virtual machine.
