Node:ECB Methods-buffer, Previous:ECB Sources-buffer, Up:Overview
The ECB-Methods buffer contains all parsed and recognized tokens of the current source-buffer. It is called "Method-buffer" because ECB is mostly designed for browsing sourcecode files and for programming-languages these tokens are often methods (and variables etc.) To simplify explanations we talk in the following only about methods and variables - but in general the method-buffer can contain any kind of tokens (e.g. sections and subsections for texinfo buffers).
IMPORTANT: If you use the POWER-click (i.e. hold down the SHIFT-key
while clicking with the primary mouse button (see Using the mouse)
or RETURN (see Using the keyboard)) on a node in this buffer then
the edit-buffer will be narrowed to the selected token (see also
ecb-token-visit-post-actions). But this works only for
sources parsed by semantic, not by imenu or etags!
