This is not about "how to use a search function"[1], because
even modules that contain ONLY *one* class can be many
hundreds or even thousands of lines, thereby demanding the
use of search functions/dialogs. 

Heck, when a class gets too big i even export some of the
methods to outside modules and load the methods dynamically
at run-time just to cut down on the length. I suppose my
detractors would find that surprising also!
