Re: Re: how about fixing the Messages command?
Thank you for your humorous and informative reply. In fact, after experimenting with Messages.m, I can see that a message will not appear in Messages[symbol] unless that message has been issued in the course of a calculation. This reminds me of the description of Needs. The file (Messages.m) is scanned, but the definitions aren't made until the "symbol" is actually used. The only problem is that Messages needs to be written in such a way that it illuminates all usage messages for a given symbol even if those messages haven't been called yet (and even if the symbol in question happens to be General).
