(objc:send RECEIVER KEYWORD1 ARGUMENT1 ...)syntax

Sends the message KEYWORD1 ARGUMENT1 ... to RECEIVER, which is an objc:instance or objc:class object. This follows the normal Objective C syntax, so the call (objc:send myRect setWidth: 15.0 height: 20.0) invokes the method setWidth:height: on myRect, with arguments 15.0 and 20.0. If the method has no arguments, use a symbol instead of a keyword: (objc:send NSScanner alloc).
