Cbrowser is a graphical C/C++ source code searching and browsing tool, and a hierarchical function call viewer. Cbrowser is a front end to the popular source code indexing and querying program cscope. The cscope code has been released as Open Source by Santa Cruz Operation, Inc. (SCO) under the BSD license. Both of these tools have text based user interfaces, and have limited file viewing capabilities. Cbrowser provides a full featured source code viewer with syntax highlighing and full text searching. The file viewer can be detached so multiple files can be viewed simultaneously. Cbrowser helps manage the recursive process of searching through source code by providing a history mechanism. Every query is recorded and can be recalled at any time, without the need of re-querying the database. Cbrowser allows you to build and use multiple source code databases for individual software projects. Switching databases is as simple as selecting the file, and a history of all databases used is kept at all times. Best of all, cbrowser provides a hierarchical function call tree. Functions may be expanded and contracted to show or hide the functions they call. The function's code itself is shown in an adjoining viewer. This feature is implemented using the megawidget Library by Jeff Hobbs which luckily for me comes with an unrestricted license.
