First of all, let me reiterate what I've said in
previous emails - I'm not trying to be critical of
DrScheme in any way. I think you guys have done a
terrific job and the module browser is an excellent
tool for what it does. I have no objection to what
you've done with module browser.

The module browser is great for looking at the overall
"structure" of modules that make up an application. It
is not really appropriate (nor do I think it was your
intention for it to be used in that way) for locating
the source of individual definitions.

Yes, what I'm struggling with is finding a mechanism
for locating the definitions of individual functions,
macros, etc. In C, Java, and CL, I have tools for
doing this. I'm just trying to find the equivalent
tools to use when I'm working with MzScheme.
