Description:


instances represent method-changes (as done in the browser). 
They are typically held in a ChangeSet.


Class protocol:

instance creation
o  class: cls selector: sel source: src category: cat

o  className: clsName selector: sel source: src category: cat


Instance protocol:

accessing
o  category

o  category: aCategory

o  changeMethod

o  changeSelector
(comment from inherited method)
the selector, if it is a method change. Nil oherwise

o  class: cls selector: sel source: src category: cat

o  classIsJava
Returns true, if this change is for Java class (i.e., if it is for
Smalltalk method that extends Java class)

o  classIsJava: aBoolean
Sets whether this change is for Java class (i.e., if it is for
Smalltalk method that extends Java class)

o  className
(comment from inherited method)
Returns class name of the class as it was present in the original change.
For changes from a file with namespace override, this will be the
className *without* toplevel namespace, but with all owning classes
(if the change class is a private class).
For changes generated internally (by the browser), this will be the full name,
and the namespace override will be nil.

cg: this is all very confusing and needs some cleanup.
However it will be done, any change here needs checks in all users of this code.

o  className: clsName selector: sel source: src category: cat

o  className: clsName selector: sel source: src category: cat privacy: priv

o  delta
obsolete: please use deltaDetail

o  deltaDetail
Returns a delta to the current state as a ChangeDelta object

o  imageSource
return the source for the in-image version of the method

o  methodCategory

o  previousPackage

o  previousVersion
return the value of the instance variable 'previousVersion' (automatically generated)

o  previousVersion: something
set the value of the instance variable 'previousVersion' (automatically generated)

o  previousVersionSource
return the value of the instance variable 'previousVersion' (automatically generated)

o  privacy

o  selector

o  selector: aSymbol

applying
o  apply
apply the change

comparing
o  isConflict
true if this change is different than what is already in the image
(i.e. it overwrites some existing code)

o  isForSameAs: changeB
return true, if the given change represents a change for the same
thingy as the receiver (i.e. same method, same definition etc.).

o  sameAs: changeB
return true, if the given change represents the same change as the receiver.

converting
o  asNamedMethodChange

fileout
o  basicFileOutOn: aStream
self printClassNameOn:aStream.

printing & storing
o  printOn: aStream
append a user printed representation of the receiver to aStream.
The format is suitable for a human - not meant to be read back.

o  printWithoutClassNameOn: aStream

o  printWithoutOwningClassOn: aStream

o  sourceForMethod

testing
o  isMethodChange
true if this is a method related change

o  isMethodChangeForCopyrightMethod
(comment from inherited method)
Return true if this is a change of #copyright method

o  isMethodChangeForExtensionsVersionMethod
true if this is a change for an extensionsVersion method

o  isMethodChangeForVersionMethod
true if this is a change for a version method

o  isMethodCodeChange
true if this is a method's code change (not package, category etc.)

visiting
o  acceptChangeVisitor: aVisitor


Private classes:

    NamedMethodChange
