GLOBAL is a source code tag system that works the same way across diverse environments. Currently, it supports the following:

   o Shell command line (see 'Global')
   o nvi editor (see 'Extended nvi using global')
   o emacs editor (see 'Emacs using global')
   o Web browser (see 'Hypertext generator')
   o Elvis editor (see 'Elvis using global')

Supported languages are C/C++ Yacc and Java. You can locate a specified function in the source files and move there easily. It is especially useful for hacking large projects containing many subdirectories, many '#ifdef' and many main() functions, like X or kernel source.

This package include the htmake(1) extension which allows GLOBAL's hypertext search function to be implemented from a single central cgi script.
