Re: How to display package contents?


I presume packagename is a context name, e.g., Graphics`Colors` .  Then 
evaluating the expression

   Names["packagename*"]

containing the wildcard symbol * will probably do what you want.

It may tell you more than you want to know unless the package was 
decently written.  By "decently" I mean that  names not needing to be 
known to the outside world have been enclosed within a Private context 
within the package's context.
