To see the textual versions of all scripts of all the players in the  
project, in a single scrolling galley, use "summary of scripts", found  
in the "authoring tools" menu (obtainable via the world's halo menu.)

To see them presented in a conventional Smalltalk message-list, use  
"browser for scripts", also in the "authoring tools" menu.

To see the textual versions of a single player's scripts, presented in  
a message-list, choose "browse class" from the more... branch of the  
menu at the top of a Viewer for the object.

The two authoring-tools-menu items are only offered if the  
"eToyFriendly" preference is set to false.  To set it that way, see  
the next item...

Open the Preferences tool (from world's halo menu), type a keyword  
(such as "trash" or "eToy") into the Search pane, hit the return key  
and you'll see buttons for all preferences matching the keyword.   
Click on a checkbox to toggle the value.
