ECB is a source code browser for (x)emacs. It displays a couple of windows that can be used to browse directories, files, and file contents like methods and variables. It supports source code parsing for languages like Java, C, C++, Elisp, Scheme, Perl, TeX, LaTeX, etc. In addition, it offers an (optional) permanent "compile window" at the bottom of the emacs frame, which is used to display all help and compile output. The rest of the frame is called the "edit area", which can be divided into several edit windows that are used for editing the sources. Deleting some of the edit windows neither destroys the compile window nor the browsing windows. It requires the CEDET suite.
