cscope/emacs: example Linux setup
This is a simple recipe for being setting up jump-to-file (for #includes) and jump-to-declaration (for symbol names) in emacs, on gprecise (should work on most posix systems).
- Install cscope:
sudo apt-get install -y cscope cscope-el
- Place the attached cscope-update script in the directory containing
gclient syncto update the cscope database
- Load the attached
.emacs; note you'll probably want to edit this with your own client roots in
- While browsing source, hit meta-. (period) to jump to the file
#included at point or to the declaration of the symbol at point.
