Re: Yes, I can contact the author
You have patches submitted into sf.net against the freezes... I submitted one of them.
It's a pitty the main branch is not maintained, and those patches are forgotten. But I suggest every user picking them from the web, and applying them.
I have also some other patches, for adding line numbers to the main window or for using a bigger font. Contact me through freshmeat if you want.
The worst bug I find is that the reading from the cscope pipe sometimes breaks the filenames, as the read loop is awful. But I don't know how to make it better in tcl, although I thought on it.
But the tool in general is really nice. Really!
Yes, I can contact the author
because I am the author! I got a little sidetracked with my day job (for about 2 years)!
You can now find cbrowser alongside cscope at http://cbrowser.sourceforge.net/. The latest version is 0.8, which fixes a few problems.
The stability problems I found were mainly with the syntax highlighting in certain files. I usually turn it off. I read that Tcl 8.3 has fixed a regexp bug that would go into an infinite loop, and I suspect that this is the cause of that lockup. I haven't tested to confirm this, but I did want to mention it anyway.
Re: great tool but unstable
A comment on my earlier comment:
cbrowser works fine, but only if your code has a main function. The instability I mentioned before is caused by code that doesn't contain a main function.
great tool, but unstable
This is a great tool, unfortunately it freezes too often to be useful (for example the call tree feature, immediately locks the program and it has to be killed).
Anybody know how to contact the author?
The e-mail address for the author listed in the README file bounces and I'd like to report a small bug. Other than the one problem I've found, this is a very useful tool!
