Operator :: Foundation
Send operator (binary): sends a message to the object self.
::<Message>[( <Arguments,...> )]
The send operator :: is an abbreviated way of writing self:. It is used to send messages only to the object self. Otherwise it is identical to the normal send operator (:) (see the send operator, :).
The operator :: can only be used within the source code for methods and it is resolved by the Xbase++ compiler.
The variable self implicitly exists within the source code of all methods as a LOCAL variable. It always references the object which is currently executing the method.
