Hi Experts,

I would like to know which editor + plugins are good for browsing large projects like linux kernel, libc etc.  I am familiar with VIM and am using gvim for my normal editing.  Is there good plugins so that I can find references/ definitions etc by selecting function names, variable names etc.  I heard about ctags but not sure how to try it when there are directory trees and many header/source files.  Any direction would be helpful.  thank you.
Please let me know of any tools(editors or otherwise that would help me with this)
thank you.
