13 Browsing class trees

The command M-x eieio-browse displays a buffer listing all the currently loaded classes in Emacs. The classes are listed in an indented tree structure, starting from eieio-default-superclass (see Default Superclass).

With a prefix argument, this command prompts for a class name; it then lists only that class and its subclasses.

Here is a sample tree from our current example:


Note: new classes are consed into the inheritance lists, so the tree comes out upside-down.
