You can't at the moment. There is no generic search feature at this point.
Actually you can easily search for packages, modules, and classes using the
Code Browser, but not functions and methods. Maybe we should create an
efficient index to search these things too? I would be happy for a detailed
proposal of the features users would like to see for the code browser.
Perhaps Google's new code searching will be some help getting started?
Certainly there should be ways to narrow this down more effectively, say
limiting search to a specific body of code (which I have not done).
I've not explored much yet, but already with this Google tool I have found
several cases where other people are publishing modified versions of
software that I had originated that I had no idea were out there. Not that
I needed to know, but it is interesting to find when someone likes what
you've done enough to push it toward new limits.
