Do you have the entire kernel cscope'd? I use xcscope.

What cscope.el or equivalent do you use? I use xcscope.el. There are
lots of versions around. This was the first one I tried which worked:


; File:         xcscope.el
; RCS:          $RCSfile: xcscope.el,v $ $Revision: 1.14 $ $Date: 2002/04/10

There was no emacs package for cscope in /usr/share/doc/cscope/contrib
as part of the Ubuntu distro.

Oh no :) Another tool :( So far I have etags, ctags, semantic &
senator and now cscope. 

A quick google shows gtags to be a faster etags : tags are already fast
enough just not powerful enough. Semantic is just plain buggy and doesn't
seem to have half the options you might need for code navigation.

cscope is the way as far as I can see, if I can find out which of the
many .el packages I should be using.

Thanks for any help.
