[ALLY] How do I view layout code

From: larry::ecotope::com at: 11-Sep-2000 22:31

Hi all I was running some tests with View and wanted to see the code produced by 'layout. I entered this line of code:
>>layo: layout [box 240x240 red]
>>view layo ;works fine
>> print mold layo
runs on for quite some time. So I wrote the output to a file: write %layo.txt mold layo The file is 428kB, 11,249 lines of code! The reason is that it contains 2 complete copies of all the VID styles, one under styles: and one under styles: in the object in the pane block. I also noticed that there are several recursive blocks in the output indicated by [...]. Some of them are associated with the init: field. IIRC we used to be able to probe or mold the face object produced by layout. Is there any way to do that now, without sorting through half a megabyte or more? Have I missed something simple? Is this a bug in 'mold? -Larry
