Lions long struggled with finding the library that contains a symbol.  The UNIX gurus can do it with a find command & some regular expressions.  Lions wanted a simple command to run, without any effort looking up regular expressions.

This only returns exact matches.  It's easy to change it to match all occurrences & symbol usage.  Forget about stripped libraries & macros.
