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

this option, only the current directory is searched.
