SLIME’s cross-reference commands are based on the support provided by the Lisp system, which varies widely between Lisps. For systems with no built-in XREF support SLIME queries a portable XREF package, which is taken from the CMU AI Repository and bundled with SLIME.
Each command operates on the symbol at point, or prompts if there is none. With a prefix argument they always prompt. You can either enter the key bindings as shown here or with the control modified on the last key, See Key bindings.
|• Xref buffer commands|
Show function callers.
Show all known callees.
Show references to global variable.
Show bindings of a global variable.
Show assignments to a global variable.
Show expansions of a macro.
Show all known methods specialized on a class.
There are also “List callers/callees” commands. These operate by rummaging through function objects on the heap at a low-level to discover the call graph. They are only available with some Lisp systems, and are most useful as a fallback when precise XREF information is unavailable.
List callers of a function.
List callees of a function.
