Hi guys,

I remember using a tool / seeing a tool used before, which could parse a C++ project and then allow people to click on a function name and find other references to it (original caller).

I was wondering if you knew a tool like that, so that I can click on a typedef and find its originating declaration.

Thanks.

You're talking about a source code browser like e.g. HyperSrc (http://www.jimbrooks.org/web/hypersrc/)?

In Visual Studio you have this when switching Browse Info on in Project Settings.

HyperSrc looks good, although I installed CTags 5.5 and hypersrc doesn't recognize it :(

I remembered there was a package that could make HTML files of the source to browse as a web page.
