7.9 Users of location information

To find location information for definitions made in the running image or recorded in a tags database or a tags file:

The extent of the search is controlled by the value of the variable *active-finders*.

For example, to obtain the locations of the definitions of foo across all dspec namespaces, call

(dspec:find-name-locations dspec:*dspec-classes* 'foo)

Another example of the use of find-name-locations is the LispWorks Editor tool's Find Definitions tab.
