Woohoo! Having cscope around totally rocks. I'm a bit bummed by the fact that what SCO released is not the latest version of it... besides the fact that it's pretty buggy. I took it upon myself to make a big step at improving that, though. I've just posted a patch to update the code from K&R C to ANSI C. Along the way, I had to fix a ton of bugs... mostly casting and argument bugs. There's one function in particular, progress(), that is especially gross. Look at it and then how it's called. I don't know what the person who did that bit was thinking, but it should work with my patch.

For us kernel hackers, I've added a '-k' option which ignores /usr/include since it only gets in the way.

So yep... I'm planning on taking this cscope to where I wanted the cscope I started working on to. Lots of features to be done... so little time. Bigfixes come first... then I'll drop in a ton of stuff. I just hope petr is open and receptive (and ready) for all of it...
