3.7 Displaying packages
Doing this changes the process package of the tool. This means that both displayed symbols and symbols typed into the tool are assumed to be in the package specified. This can be useful in a browser, for example, if you intend to browse a number of different objects which come from the same package.
You can do this by choosing View > Package: package-name. The exact name of this command varies: package-name is the name of the current package in the tool. Type a new package name in the dialog that appears.
As an example, imagine you are looking at a list of symbols in the inspector. You are working in the package
FOO, and some of the symbols in the inspector are in that package, while others are in another package. To change the current package of the inspector to
FOO, follow the instructions below:
USERis the current package in this window. A dialog appears, allowing you to change the current package.
USER, and type
FOOappear without the package prefix
FOO. Similarly, all exported symbols in packages which
FOOuses appear without a package prefix, while all others have an appropriate package prefix.
