HI all,

I am using Ethereum Wallet v0.8.1 on mac.

I already deployed the contract successfully, and wonder how can either:

1. edit my contract that already deployed
2. or, view the source code and copy it out as text

thanks,

    afaik you cant.
    1. the whole point about using a blockchain is the immutability of data saved on it. you could only change your contract if you implemented an update function of some sort before deploying it.
    2. the source code cannot be viewed after deployment, but you could verfiy the code you have corresponds to the contract on the blockchain by comparing the bytecode of its creation TX to that of your code
