|Full description=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:
