Projects / cgvg


cgvg is a pair of Perl scripts ("cg" and "vg") which are meant to assist a programmer in doing command-line source browsing. The idea was to be a temporary replacement for cscope until there was a good GPLed cscope available, but there are some advantages to cgvg (as well as some disadvantages). "cg" does the search through code, storing matches in the user's home directory and displaying matches, and "vg" opens an editor at the line in the file where a particular match was found. Some features include color and human-readable output, resizing to screen width, support for many editors, recursive searching, a per-user configuration file, etc.

            I'm sorry, but what does this do that ctags and vi -t don't do?
