[Newbies] finding assignments to variables?

Hi Ralph,

You should be able to trace that using references.  If you used a mutator
just do senders of the mutator.

so ivar foo

might have an accessor

MyClass >> foo
   "return the value of foo"

and a mutator

MyClass >> foo: aFoo
   "set the value of foo to aFoo"
   foo := aFoo

if you only used the mutator to set the value of foo then senders of foo:
will give you what you are looking for.

if no use references.  By the way, if you did things this way references
will show your accessor and mutator, which is why I said you should be able
to trace it (by doing senders of what is returned by references.

All the best,

Ron Teitelbaum
