Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies cscope-15.9.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
Cscope is a text screen based source browsing tool.  Although it is
primarily designed to search C code (including lex and yacc files), it
can also be used for C++ code.

Using cscope, you can easily search for where symbols are used and
defined.  Cscope is designed to answer questions like:

        Where is this variable used?
        What is the value of this preprocessor symbol?
        Where is this function in the source files?
        What functions call this function?
        What functions are called by this function?
        Where does the message "out of space" come from?
        Where is this source file in the directory structure?
        What files include this header file?

It has been released by The Santa Cruz Operation, Inc as Open Source
under the BSD license.  Please look at COPYING for a detailed
description of the license.

One thing to be pointed out is that this is ancient Unix software
predating much of today's security concerns.  While we do try to
address safety issues as we learn about them, it must be said that
this is in no way hardened or secure software.  It's designed to be
used by developers, not administrators or anonymous users.
