17A. bin/showmodule
-------------------
As you might have noticed, E's equivalent for "includes", modules, are binary
files, much like those usually suplied with Modula2 compilers, for example.
To display the contents of such a file in readable ascii form, you may use
showmodule:

showmodule <modulespec>

examples:

1> showmodule emodules:intuition/intuition
1> showmodule >gadtools.txt emodules:gadtools

note that showmodule by default outputs to stdout, and may be interrupted at
any point by <ctrlc>.

when given the option -c, ShowModule will output modules with library
declarations in .fd format, constants in #define format.
