GNU GLOBAL

https://www.gnu.org/software/global/
Cross-environment source code tag system.

GLOBAL is a source code tagging system that functions in the same way across a wide array of environments, such as different text editors, shells and web browsers. The resulting tags are useful for quickly moving around in a large, deeply nested project.

GNU GLOBAL has the following features:

  • supports C, C++, Yacc, Java, PHP4 and assembly.
  • works the same way across diverse environments including vi, emacs, less, bash
  • finds locations of specified symbol quickly.
  • locates not only definitions but also references.
  • allows duplicate tags.
  • locates paths which matches to the specified pattern.
  • hierarchical searches by default.
  • searches not only in a source project but also in library projects.
  • generates completion list for completing input method.
  • supports various output formats.
  • allows customizing of a set of candidate files to be tagged.
  • understands POSIX 1003.2 regular expression.
  • supports idutils as an external search engine.
  • tag files are independent of machine architecture.
  • supports incremental updating of tag files.
  • plug-in parser is available to treat new language.
  • supports customizing using ‘gtags.conf’.
  • generates a hypertext of source code.
  • compact format to save disk space.
  • supports client/server environment (TRAMP ready).
  • ignores binary files, dot files and specified files.
  • includes cscope-compatible program (gtags-cscope).
  • includes grep-like command (-g command).
  • supports grep-like symbol highlighting.
