Just for thread completeness, how do you add these options when inviking
cscope from emacs? How are you accessing cscope from emacs? Which el
package do you use?

Well, its a long story. I created my own cscope.el back in 1990. I'm happy to share it but it has lots of weird twisted gunk in it. I have the concept of an "inherited buffer". Each buffer has a buffer local variable that points back to its inherited buffer. In this way, different buffers can use different cscope's and not get confused between them. At the time, there was a lot of other things that were inherited besides just the cscope information
(like build information and that sort of thing).

I also have a script called cscope-front (I've appended it to the bottom). I doubt if it will do you much good either except just as a thought of calling cscope via a script and then that script can add and subtract arguments based upon a number of variables. This keeps the lisp code simpler -- I was more comfortable writing shell
scripts than lisp code at the time.

I create the cscope database via make. The makefile creates a list of files called cscope.files,
(usually based upon various make variables), then it calls cscope as:

cscope -q -b

(The cscope I'm using defaults to looking in cscope.files for the list of files.)

From emacs, I call cscope-front (using my cscope.el routines). As you can see, the script
has debug output to /tmp/doggy.  Here are some sample lines from doggy:

a='' p='/home/pedz/Eclipse/SATA/src'
/usr/local/bin/cscope -d -q -l -P /home/pedz/Eclipse/SATA/src -f cscope.out

The last line is all the args I use to call cscope with.

Hopefully, something in here will be useful to you.

# First arg is the string to pass to setup, second arg is the
# directory where the cscope should behave from
p=$( echo $2 | sed -e 's%/$%%' )


/bin/pwd >>  /tmp/doggy
echo "a='$a' p='$p'" >> /tmp/doggy
if [ -n "$a" ] ; then
  source ~/.setup $a
# DFS permissions are weird and I can execute things even though the
# file system says I can not.  So I only check to see if the file
# exists or not.
if [ -e cscope/bin/cscope ] ; then
elif [ -e ../cscope/bin/cscope ] ; then
elif [ -e ../../cscope/bin/cscope ] ; then

echo $CSCOPE -d -q -l -P "$p" "$@" >> /tmp/doggy
exec $CSCOPE -d -q -l -P "$p" "$@" 2>>/tmp/doggy
# echo $CSCOPE -q -l -P "'$p'" "$@" >> /tmp/doggy
# exec $CSCOPE -q -l -P "'$p'" "$@" 2>> /tmp/doggy
# echo $CSCOPE -q -l >> /tmp/doggy
