Well, I do this now.  Check the top of any overloaded function's page
(constructors are overloaded methods too)


Click on the method name to jump to that method.

Did you mean something different?

Point to it?  Where?

Yes, I think that would be a big improvement.  I'll add this to the TODO

I thought it looked fairly confusing with arguments added, but maybe it
would be OK if the font size was reduced.  It will take some fiddling.

You mean like this?


In the next relase I'll add a list organized by static/non-static
(dynamic?) as well.

Or do you mean, first sorted by type, then sorted by access, THEN sorted
by name?  I can do that without much trouble too, and that does sound
useful.  I'll add some deeper combinations to the next release.

Finally, I guess my layout is a bit confusing.  It's not clear, for
instance, that you go to the summary page by clicking on "TextReader" at
the top (also by clicking on either the "Public Members" or "Protected
Members" table titles).  Problem is, I don't want to clutter up the page
with "To view the summary page, click _here_" messages.  If anyone has
any ideas on how to make navigation easier, I'd love to hear them.
