Tool copies a tabulator separated base name list to system clipboard. Copied base names form a player chain of given association type from current topic to the edge of association chain.
For example think binary associations: a-b, b-c, d-e, e-f. Here letters a through f represent players in associations. We are not interested in association type. Roles remain same in all associations in our example. As you can easy figure there is an association chain from a to f as you can travel from a to f using the association. Now lets think you have selected association b-c and further you have selected player b. Executing this tool in this context copies system clipboard a list of topics b, c, d, e, f. If you select association b-c and the player c you clipboard ends up to contain player topics c, b, a.
Tool can be used to locate a root node of tree type associations for example. Super-subclass relations form usually a tree type association stucture.
