Thanks for the reply.
You are right, I might forward this post to the developers mailing
list. I did a little bit of research and found the following:
1. cbrowser - tk/tcl front end to cscope. Seems like it is
unmaintained. According to sourceforge last file upload was 07/03/2000.
2. kscope - Qt front end to csope. Last update was in Jan 2008. Looks
very promising and powerful.
3. csope - the mother. CLI interface. At version 15.6!! (Almost as old
as emacs ;) ). Last update was in 2006 but it looks like it is still
4. doc++ - Documentation system that generates LaTeX/html. Latest
upload was on dec 2002.
5. gonzui - code search engine. looks to be unmaintained but good
potential. Does online code search, not sure if it can do offline
Most of the above are either for c/c++. I'm still trying to look for
something that covers other languages.
