Huh, yeah it's right in Base. I guess I have a problem figuring out what module things are in -- specifically Base, Format, and Async, though Base and Iter are also hard to tell apart at times. Now that I look at it, I realize I could just expand all the function lists on the front page of the documentation; instead I kept looking on individual pages. Maybe an "expand list of all available functions" link on the front page would help?
For the while True thing... damn, stopping a runaway thread is hard. Certainly on the client side some indication of command-sent-waiting-for-response can be added easily enough, but unfortunately I don't know how to actually handle the problem of infinite loops.
There are two ways to handle an infinite loop.. you can set a trace func that checks some variable to see if it should raise an exception or not, or you can hack into some semi-private C API which lets you send an exception to another thread. The former is probably better for this.
I'll see about adding that expand all button, should be easy enough.
Keep in mind that Turing proved (before computers existed in fact) that it is impossible to accurately detect infinte loops -- it's called the 'Halting problem' FYI.# Silas Snider
