KScope is a graphical front-end to Cscope. It provides a source browsing and
editing environment for large C projects. KScope is focused on source editing
and analysis.
KScope is built around an efficient mechanism for code-navigation, which
allows the user to run queries on the code.
The types of queries KScope can run include:
* Get all references to a symbol
* Find the definition of a symbol
* Find all functions called by or calling to a function
* Find an EGrep pattern
* Find all files #including some file
These queries are handled by an underlying Cscope process. KScope simply
serves as a front-end to this process, feeding it with queries, and parsing
its output into result lists. The items in those lists can later be selected
to open an editor at the matching line.
Main Features:
* Multiple editor windows (using your favourite editor)
* Project management
* Front-end to most Cscope queries
* Tag list for every open editor
* Call-tree window
* Session management, including saving and restoring queries
* Works with externally-built cscope.out files
