If I type the following:
using REPL REPL._helpmode( "push!" )
I get the following output:
:(#= /home/flynn/projects/julia/julia-1.1/usr/share/julia/stdlib/v1.1/REPL/src/docview.jl:40 =# (REPL).@repl Base.TTY(RawFD(0x0000000d) open, 0 bytes waiting) push!)
If I call eval on this expression I get the formatted documentation for the push! function.
Can someone explain how this magic happens ? I see nothing in the above expression that looks like it’s extracting the docs from push!
