ExcludedContexts

ExcludedContexts

is an option for FullDefinition, Manipulate and related symbols that gives contexts whose symbols will not have the definitions recursively saved.

Details

  • Functions such as FullDefinition, Manipulate, etc. that report or store the full set of definitions associated with a symbol recursively pull in the definitions of symbols that appear on the right-hand side of each definition. ExcludedContexts limits the recursive collection of definitions by ignoring symbols in the contexts specified.
  • Common settings include:
  • Automaticexclude contexts that are considered internal to the system
    {}exclude no contexts
    "Context`"exclude the specified context only
    "Context`*"exclude the specified context and all its subcontexts
    {spec1,spec2,}exclude any context matching one of the speci
  • ExcludedContexts takes precedence over IncludedContexts. »
  • A context can be specified using string patterns in the same way as in Contexts[].
