LispWorks IDE User Guide > 20 The Output Browser


20.1 Interactive compilation messages

Compilation messages are highlighted in the output, with errors, warnings and optimization hints each displayed in a unique style. When the editor's cursor is within a compilation message, choose Find Source in the context menu to display the source code where the condition occurred, in an Editor tool.

You can also raise a Compilation Conditions Browser tool to view the errors and warnings directly from the output view, by pressing Return as mentioned in the output shown above.

Another way to visit the source code where the condition occurred is the editor's Edit Recognized Source command which is bound to Ctrl+X , (comma) in Emacs emulation.
