GNU GLOBAL

https://www.gnu.org/software/global/
GLOBAL is a browsing system for C, C++, Yacc and Java source code: it lets you find the locations of function definitions and functions references in source files. It is useful if you want to hack a large project containing many subdirectories, many '#ifdef' and many main() functions. GLOBAL supports the following environments: a shell command line, a Web browser, and both the Emacs and vi editors. Other features include:

  • ability to locate object references as well as object definitions
  • allows duplicate objects
  • can generate a hypertext source tree.
  • can generate a dynamic index with a CGI program
  • tag files independent of machine architecture
  • supports plug-in parsers with its configuration file
  • supports a compact format to save disk space
  • supports incremental updating of tag files
  • treats a source tree containing subdirectories as a logical scope; you can get the relative path of objects from any where within that scope
