I´m looking for a way to find references to symbols or atoms in the Smalltalk source. I found a discussion on comp.lang.smalltalk:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lan ... 9b3d25a950

But I did not manage to find a way in VA Smalltalk to find references for symbols. Although, I found strange atoms in few system methods. This looks exactly like the solution I was looking for. For example:

- Code: Select all
`CwToggleButton>>createEwFlowedIconList: theName argBlock: argBlock`

##PR = ##'1E3MPXK'.

^EwFlowedIconList

createWidget: theName

parent: self

argBlock: argBlock

PR stands for problem report? And the '1E3MPXK' is the problem number? How to find the methods with PR 1E3MPXK?

Could someone explain how this works, and how could I find references to symbols or atoms?
