OK, Here it is..

code_finder:start(). to start. Hit "Update", wait for a minute or so and
then you can search away in all exported functions in your path.

e.g. 

mnesia - greps all functions with mnesia anywhere in the module or function
name
mnesia: - lists only functions exported from the mnesia module
mnesia:dirty - lists all functions exported from mnesia containing the
string "dirty"
mnesia:dirty/1 - lists all functions exported from mnesia containing the
string dirty of arity 1.

Hit Return or click Find to search.

If anyone finds any bugs or finds the TODO items so annoying they feel
inspired to implement them then be my guest - please just let me know.

Enjoy!

P.S It would have been somewhat quicker to write if the docs for the
Abstract form and its toolset were a little more informative :)
