13.4 Displaying Common Lisp definitions

The Definitions view lists all the Common Lisp definitions which can be found in the current buffer. Open a file containing several defining forms, such as the Othello game example in examples/capi/applications/othello.lisp. and then click on the Definitions tab. The Editor appears as shown in Examining Common Lisp definitions in the Editor below.
