Finder

From SmartEiffelWiki

Usage

 se find [options] [<ACEfile.ace>] <Class> 

The find command tells you which file is loaded when searching for an Eiffel <Class>.

When an Eiffel file is found, find prints the full path name on standard output.

The exit status is set GENERAL.exit_success_code only when an existing file is found (thus allowing usage of the find command in shell scripts). As for other commands, when the ACE file mode is used, only the content of the <ACEfile.ace> file is used to search the source file. To see the loading path used by SmartEiffel, you can for example type the find command using a bad (inexistent) class name. In ACE file mode, the loading path can be updated by modifying the ACE file itself. In traditional mode (i.e. no ACE file), the default loading path may also be tailored (see below).
