kramarao is not the author of this tool, but thought it would be a good addition to Cool Tools.

Cscope is a developer’s tool for browsing source code.

Following are the features of the Cscope.

  • 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.
