The mclassinfo command retrieves class information about both event and data classes that are loaded in the cell. Information consists of class name, slot descriptions, and subclasses.

You can retrieve the complete class tree in a hierarchical form, or you can retrieve only selected classes instead of the whole hierarchy.

You can retrieve associated definitions of enumerations used in the classes. These definitions are reported before the class tree.
