The System Browser provides an intuitive graphical way to examine and operate on systems and their members.
For example, the operation outlined in A brief introduction to systems would be performed by the System Browser menu commands Systems > Compilation options > Force followed by Systems > Compile .
To create a System Browser, choose
Tools > System Browser
in the Podium. Alternatively, choose
File > Browse Parent System
from any appropriate tool in the environment or execute
in an editor, to display the parent system for the selected or current file in the System Browser. See Operating on files for details.

form into the Lisp image. For instance, open the file in an Editor and choose
File > Load
. Alternatively, choose
File > Load...
from the System Browser and choose a file to load in the dialog that appears.
