If you don’t have the package installed and need to know where the function resides you can search for it on Juliahub:

A number of package can potentially implement the same function. The best way I think is to use the

@edit macro but that requires the input type to be specified.

like @edit integrate_ODE(blah1, blah2). You might have to follow @edit a few times. Some suggest using Cthulu.jl but I got intimidated.
