CScope Support

Postby hschauhan » Tue Sep 30, 2008 6:00 pm

I was searching for better code editors on linux. Tried using emacs also. Once I used edtira I was hooked. But I miss the support the CSCope support in editra. I need this because I am looking at linux kernel source all the time and I need a code browsing (not the code browser) facility that cscope provides.

Is it possible to have it?

Hello,

I am not familiar with cscope. If you could give me some information about it I could look into it.


Thanks,

Cody

Cscope is a code browsing tool for c/c++/Java etc.

it allows searching code for:

a. all references to a symbol
b. global definitions
c. functions called by a function
d. functions calling a function
e. text string
f. regular expression pattern
g. a file
h. files including a file

The website for tool is:
http://cscope.sourceforge.net/

It really helps in cross-referencing in a very large code base. You can jump from function usage to its definition and jump back. Grep for certain expression. Emacs and VI have support for this. It would be nice to have in edtira!

Hello,

Agreed, I do have some plans for adding some additional features like this. The next release has a number of new powerful text searching features, which include grepping files.

Probably we don't require much coding. Calling Cscope interfaces would be great!
