Here’s a simple conceptual model to think of if it seems a bit
Go to your deskop and create a folder called myfolder.
open myfolder and create a folder inside it called myfolder.
Considering your desktop is TOP level much like main() is to many
programming languages and environments. Or how Class is an abstraction
for object oriented languages what Stucts are abstracted data types to
If you want to blow your mind a bit you can create an alias, shortcut,
or softlink depending on operating system to reference (or point to)
the original myfolder.
Actually I’m not sure if that’s helpful. I’m better with fixing
problems that exist at a gestalt level. Maybe looking at ObjectSpace
may also give some hints (or a screen full of junk) on the
interpreters preprocessing state.

Minor nitpick: I think you’re confusing MagLev, which has a Smalltalk
VM base, and Rubinius, which has an LLVM base.
My bad. I can’t install MagLev on FreeBSD. Is it worth checking out.
For extension languages I prefer these interpreters to be able to run
everywhere. I don’t know how I was mislead. wikipedia mentions a short
stub on using the smalltalk bluebook but outside of using pry to
become inspired on some of the methods already in place in the
language I generally use mri and in some cases jruby. What’s the use
case for maglev? Fuse ruby with squeak?
