Cscope is a program that generates index tables from C and C++ source files. It is also a client program that knows how to use the generated index tables to answer questions such as where is a symbol defined, where is a symbol referenced, etc.

    * Allows searching code for:

        * all references to a symbol
        * global definitions
        * functions called by a function
        * functions calling a function
        * text string
        * regular expression pattern
        * a file
        * files including a file

    * Curses based (text screen)
    * An information database is generated for faster searches and later reference
    * The fuzzy parser supports C, but is flexible enough to be useful for C++ and Java, and for use as a generalized 'grep database' (use it to browse large text documents!)
    * Has a command line mode for inclusion in scripts or as a backend to a GUI/frontend
    * Runs on all flavors of Unix, plus most monopoly-controlled operating systems.
