:who-references

Arguments: name &key inverse in-files in-functions

This is the top-level command equivalent of who-references.

When the value of the inverse argument is nil (the default), this command prints information in the database about those functions which reference the global variable identified by name. When the value of the inverse argument is true, this command prints information on the global variables referenced by the function identified by name.

When inverse is nil, name can be any lisp object but only global variables make sense as the value (no cross reference information is gathered for other types of Lisp objects). When inverse is true, name must be a function name (either a symbol or a list of the type described in the discussion of function specs in implementation.htm).

The in-functions and in-files keyword arguments can be used to restrict the search to particular functions (for in-functions) or functions defined in particular files (for in-files). The default value for each argument is nil, which calls for an unrestricted search. When inverse is nil (so a list of functions is printed by this command) a true value for in-functions or in-files should be a list of function names or file names (respectively) and the information printed will be the intersection of the functions found in the database and the functions in the list or defined in files in the list (respectively). Note that source file information must have been recorded for the files in the in-files list. When inverse is true (so this function is printing the list of global variables referenced by the function identified by name), the list that is the value of in-functions should be a list of global variables and only those found in the database and in the list will be printed.

See top-level.htm for more information on top-level commands. See cross-reference.htm for information on the cross reference utility.
