How can I get functions list inside a module in interactive shell (iex) on Windows?

I’m on Windows 10 and Elixir development is alright on Windows, but I miss only one thing. When I type a module name on Ubuntu or Mac and press tab it shows all the functions available in that module, but on Windows I can’t get that list by pressing tab.
Is there any solution for this?
I’m using Cmder as my console emulator.

Either call module.__info__ or use iex --werl. The latter will open in a new window though.

module.__info__ doesn’t print the complete list on Windows, I don’t know why. But theiex --werl is handy.

Thank You!

Have never tried it on windows. I try to avoid win as much as possible :wink:

But e.g. Enum.__info__(:functions) returns a list of all functions in the Enum module. The printing of it is truncated though, perhaps thats the case in your experiments as well?

Yes, the list is truncated in this case, but using --werl is a good option.

You can also do exports ModuleName and it will show all functions + macros.


Ooo, I’ve not noticed that, I usually do `ModuleName.module_info()[:exports]. ^.^
Tabular is much easier to read. ^.^

Wow! that’s super awesome.

Thank You Jose! <3
