How do I do this? (eval() on the left hand side)

I do the same thing in Delphi -> prepend "Self" before all the members in  
class methods even though its not required.  I do it partially for the  
same reason as you - so I can grok which variables are local and which are  
global (well, global within the class, anyway).

The other reason is because of the magical little menu that pops up when I  
type the period after "Self", and lets me pick a class member by typing  
the first few letters...

Keep well
