3.5 Finding definitions (“Meta-Point” commands).

The familiar M-. command is provided. For generic functions this command finds all methods, and with some systems it does other fancy things (like tracing structure accessors to their DEFSTRUCT definition).

M-x slime-edit-definition
Go to the definition of the symbol at point.
M-x slime-pop-find-definition-stack
Go back to the point where M-. was invoked. This gives multi-level backtracking when M-. has been used several times.
C-x 4 .
M-x slime-edit-definition-other-window
Like slime-edit-definition but switches to the other window to edit the definition in.
C-x 5 .
M-x slime-edit-definition-other-frame
Like slime-edit-definition but opens another frame to edit the definition in.
M-x slime-edit-definition-with-etags
Use an ETAGS table to find definition at point.
