It does. On the OLPC XO there is a special "view source" key that brings up the source code for every program. In Etoys, it shows a menu with access to browsers etc. On other machines, try "command-comma" to see it (chosen to be similar to command-period which brings up the debugger).

Agreed. It would be awesome if you could make a project that has those tools open. We would happily add it to the "Examples" section.

If you have that, please upload it to our tracker at
