Abstract

Disclosed is a process to enable a source code editor to display meta-data information of interest to a programmer presently reading the source code, without extra work by either a programmer who modified the code in the past or by a programmer who is presently reading the code. The disclosed process also enables the source code editor to selectively display code based on structured query language (SQL) queries about the meta-data. The disclosed process further enables controlled modification of a line of code based on the meta-data for the line of code.
