The #show_* directives proposed in #5377 seem to correspond to the #query directive of enthop, with two differences:

  • #query shows everything related (more like the search functionality of ocamlbrowser)
  • the proposed #show_module strips the contents of nested modules

The goal of #show_* is to display a precise definition, and to make sure that it is readable (modules can be huge).
Maybe we need something like #query, but this this would not replace #show_*

There are other good ideas in enhtop, like showing the internal number for shadowed type constructors (usually this is only done in type errors).

The link is dead and I can't find enhtop anywhere else, so I'm suspending this issue
