24.1. Navigating the Source Code

The source code for the current assertion will be automatically displayed in the text viewer when the window is created. However, the source code will be displayed as it is found in the file system, without preprocessing applied to it. This means that included files will not be displayed in an in-lined fashion. To view included files, simply click on the included filename (it will be underlined). This will cause the included file to replace its includer in the text viewer. An infinite number of includes may be traversed in this manner. To go back to the file that included the current file, simply click on the Back button located in the bottom left-hand corner of the window. This will cause the current source code to be replaced with its "parent" source code.

Note that the Back button will be disabled when the top-level assertion file is currently displayed.

To exit this window, simply click on Close button. To see this help page for the assertion source code window, click on the help (?) button.
