This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

LibMindReader is a mixin library (can also run 'not mixed in') that generates an AceConfigDialog-table from a variable. Running this table then allows the user to peek, poke and prod the variable in the following ways:

- The table structure is shown as a tree. Efforts have been done do avoid recursiveness due to tables linking each other.

- Selecting a table node in the tree shows an input box where the user can input some code and execute it as a method of that node.

- Selecting a number or a string shows an input box where the value can be viewed and edited. Editing is not available if the number or string is not a member of a known table.

- Selecting a function shows an execute button to execute the function. An inputbox is also provided to type in code to generate parameters for the call.

Because the parameters of a function can not be determined from within Lua the addon being debugged can provide LibMindReader with a tip through calling of :AddFtionTip(func, paramstring, ismethod) or :AddFtionTips(tiptable).

When building the AceConfig-node for the function LibMindReader will use paramstring to help the user.

The builds can be managed using a standalone addon called MindBrowser (not yet created) which will also be able to add function tips to copy/pasted source code (so you lazy gits don't have to ;) ).
