Programming with MOOs can take place at two levels. At level one, the lower level, one deals with the LambdaMOO language developed by Pavel Curtis at XEROX PARC. This is a powerful object-oriented language. The Programmer's Manual (PostScript) is large (419K) and long; most of it is not really needed by those interested in using MOOs or developing classes and objects for them. A summary of the key features, plus a discussion of many utility library functions, is found in the MOO programming cheat sheet (25K). A nicely formatted PostScript file about the utilities is also available.
Level two programming is focussed on developing classes and objects for MOOs. There are various tutorials inside MOOs, and a good medium length (19K) text file tutorial.
