13.1.1 Function box

The Function box shows the name of the generic function you are examining. To browse a generic function, type its name into the Function area, or paste it in from another tool in one of two ways:

When typing in the name of a function, you can click to complete the name of the function, or display a list of possible completions from which you can select the function you want to browse.

Note: You can use Edit > Paste to paste in a generic function, even if the Common LispWorks clipboard currently contains the string representation of the function, rather than the function itself. This lets you copy in generic functions from other applications, as well as from the environment. See Using the clipboard for a complete description of the way the Common LispWorks clipboard operates.

You can operate on the current generic function using the commands in the Generic Function Browser's Function menu. See Performing operations on the current function or selected methods for details.
