Maya Script Editor - Code Inspector

This is a neat little bit of integration to the script editor's popup menu that's going into the latest build of the Red9 Pack, v1.24.
I've added a new menu item to the ScriptEditor RMB popup, "Red9_InspectFunction", which uses either the whatIs command for MEL or Python's inspect module to then lookup the source function file for the highlighted text, if found it will open up the mel or python module in the default editor on your system. Really handy for debugging!
Since this video I've also managed to get it to run from the history scroll as well as the editor itself which makes it even easier.
