Version:
rev: 1.418 date: 2019/08/10 12:07:02

Author:

Description:


Notice: SystemBrowser has been completely rewritten to be an instance
of ApplicationModel. This rewritten version is found under Tools::NewSystemBrowser.
Because the class protocol here was used by many others, it is left here
as an instance-less functionality provider only.

special search startup
o  allCallsOn: aSelectorString

This takes some time, because source code is parsed to see
if there is really a message send inside (and not just a symbol reference)

usage example(s):

     Time millisecondsToRun:[
         SystemBrowser allCallsOn:#at:put:
     ].            

o  allCallsOn: aSelectorString in: aCollectionOfClasses
return a collection of methods which send aSelector.
Methods from classes in aCollectionOfClasses are searched only.

o  allCallsOn: aSelectorString in: aCollectionOfClasses ignoreCase: ignoreCase
return a collection of methods which send aSelector.
Methods from classes in aCollectionOfClasses are searched only.

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser allCallsOn:#at:put: in:(Smalltalk allClasses)

o  allCallsOn: aSelectorString in: aCollectionOfClasses ignoreCase: ignoreCase match: doMatchArg
return a collection of methods which send aSelector.
Methods from classes in aCollectionOfClasses are searched only.

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser allCallsOn:#at:put: in:(Smalltalk allClasses)

o  allMethodsIn: aCollectionOfClasses inst: wantInst class: wantClass where: aBlock
return a collection of methods which pass the given test.
wantInst/wantClass control if instMethods and/or classMethods are to be
considered.
Only classes in aCollectionOfClasses are inspected in the search

o  allMethodsIn: aCollectionOfClasses where: aBlock
return a collection of methods which pass the given test.
Only classes in aCollectionOfClasses are inspected in the search

o  aproposSearch: aString
browse all methods, which have aString in their selector.

o  aproposSearch: aString in: aCollectionOfClasses
browse all methods, which have aString.
This is relatively slow, since all source must be processed.

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser aproposSearch:'append' in:(Collection withAllSubclasses)
     SystemBrowser aproposSearch:'add'    in:(Collection withAllSubclasses)
     SystemBrowser aproposSearch:'sort'   in:(Collection withAllSubclasses)
     SystemBrowser aproposSearch:'[Aa]bsent' in:(Collection withAllSubclasses)

o  browseAllCallsOn: aSelectorString

Notice: better go via Smalltalk browseAllCallsOn:, which honors the tool-preferences

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser browseAllCallsOn:#+

o  browseAllCallsOn: aSelectorString in: aSetOfClasses
launch a browser for all senders of aSelector

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser browseAllCallsOn:#+ in:(Number withAllSubclasses)

launch a browser for all senders of aSelector in aCollectionOfClasses

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser
        browseAllCallsOn:#+ 
        in:(Number withAllSubclasses) 
        title:'just a test'

o  browseAllCallsOn: aSelectorString in: aCollectionOfClasses ignoreCase: ignoreCase title: titleArg
launch a browser for all senders of aSelector in aCollectionOfClasses

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser
        browseAllCallsOn:#+ 
        in:(Number withAllSubclasses) 
        title:'just a test'

o  browseAllCallsOn: aSelectorString in: aCollectionOfClasses title: title
launch a browser for all senders of aSelector in aCollectionOfClasses

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser

        in:(Number withAllSubclasses) 
        title:'just a test'

launch a browser for all senders of aSelector in aClass and subclasses

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser browseCallsOn:#+ under:Number

o  browseClassRefsTo: aString in: aCollectionOfClasses modificationsOnly: modsOnly

aString is referenced; if modsOnly is true, browse only methods where the
classvar is modified

o  browseClassRefsTo: varName in: aCollectionOfClasses modificationsOnly: modsOnly title: title
launch a browser for all methods in aCollectionOfClasses,
where the classVar named aString is referenced;
if modsOnly is true, browse only methods where the classvar is modified

o  browseClassRefsTo: aString under: aClass modificationsOnly: modsOnly
launch a browser for all methods in aClass and subclasses
where the classVar named aString is referenced;
if modsOnly is true, browse only methods where the classvar is modified

o  browseForResource: aResourceSymbol containing: item in: aCollectionOfClasses title: title
launch a browser for all methods which have a particular (or any, ifNil)
resource in aCollectionOfClasses.
If aKey is nonNil, only methods which have aKey in the (any) resourceSpec
are parsed.
I.e. to find all methods, which access the styleSheets, use:
browseForResource:#style containing:nil in:... title:...
to find methods which access the 'arrowButtonDownForm' styleSheet entry, use:
browseForResource:#style containing:'arrowButtonDownForm' in:... title:...

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser
        browseForResource:nil
        in:Smalltalk allClasses
        title:'methods with a resource'

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser
        browseForResource:#style
        containing:nil
        in:Smalltalk allClasses
        title:'methods with a #style resource'

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser

resource in aCollectionOfClasses

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser

        in:Smalltalk allClasses
        title:'methods accessing styleSheet values'

        browseForResource:#keyboard
        in:Smalltalk allClasses
        title:'methods handling keyboard events'

usage example(s):

     SystemBrowser
        browseForResource:nil
        in:Smalltalk allClasses
        title:'methods with a resource'

If singleClass is true, a single class will be asked for and browsed,
otherwise, a match pattern is allowed and a multi-class browser is opened.
