       cscope-indexer - Script to index files for cscope


       cscope-indexer [-v] [-f database_file] [-i list_file] [-l] [-r]


       This  script  generates a list of files to index (cscope.out), which is
       then (optionally) used to generate a cscope database.  You can use this
       script to just build a list of files, or it can be used to build a list
       and database.  This script  is  not  used  to  just  build  a  database
       (skipping  the  list of files step), as this can be simply done by just
       calling "cscope -b".

       Normally, cscope will do its own indexing, but this script can be  used
       to  force  indexing.   This  is  useful  if  you  need  to recurse into
       subdirectories, or have many files to index (you can  run  this  script
       from  a cron job, during the night).  It is especially useful for large
       projects, which can contstantly have source files added and deleted; by
       using  this  script,  the  changing  sources  files  are  automatically

       Currently, any paths containing "/CVS/" or  "/RCS/"  are  stripped  out


       -f database_file
              Specifies the cscope database file (default: cscope.out).

       -i list_file
              Specifies  the  name of the file into which the list of files to
              index is placed (default: cscope.files).

       -l     Suppress the generation/updating of the  cscope  database  file.
              Only a list of files is generated.

       -r     Recurse  into  subdirectories to locate files to index.  Without
              this option, only the current directory is searched.

       -v     Be verbose.  Output simple progress messages.
