object-symbol

Arguments: object &optional package

Returns a symbol derived from an arbitrary object. When a command that acts on a symbol (such as trace or quick-symbol-info) is invoked in the Allegro development environment, the default selected-symbol method finds a symbol to apply the command to by calling object-symbol on the selected-object of the selected window. Object-symbol may return nil if a symbol cannot be derived in some reasonable way from the object. Object-symbol is bypassed if there is a more specific selected-symbol method for a particular command and selected window; these more specific methods sometimes exist when it is not sufficient to funnel through the general selected-object in order to derive a selected-symbol for the window.
