Full description A package of language independent tools thA package of language independent tools that indexes program identifiers, literal numbers, or words of human-readable text. Through an "ID database," a binary file containing a list of filenames, a list of tokens, and a simple matrix indicating which tokens appear in which files, text-searching tasks become simpler and faster. The ID utilities handle more than just identifiers; they also treat other kinds of tokens, including numeric constants, and the contents of certain character strings. Database queries can be issued from the command-line, or from within emacs, serving as an augmented tags facility. Programs included are: <br /> mkid: (id-utils)mkid invocation. Creating an ID database.<br /> * lid: (id-utils)lid invocation. Matching words and patterns. * fid: (id-utils)fid invocation. Listing a file's tokens. * fnid: (id-utils)fnid invocation. Looking up file names. * xtokid: (id-utils)xtokid invocation. Testing mkid scanners.)xtokid invocation. Testing mkid scanners.
