Declarations  

Opens the Browser showing symbol declarations. The list of declarations also includes the symbol definition.

Uses  

Opens the Browser showing all uses of the symbol that is not a function. This relates all uses of the symbol’s value, address, and assignments to it. If the symbol is a structure, uses of its members will also be shown, if so defined by Search uses of structure members check box, in the Options > Browser dialog box ("Browser Options").

Assignments

Global Constants  

Opens the Browser showing an alphabetically sorted list of all global constants. To locate the desired constant in the list more easily, use the incremental search.

Global Types
