Thanks, Eric. I already use etags... just thought semantic might be better
or easier to use. I'm looking for a nice, simple class broswer for C++.
Semantic almost works but it should have something to generate all the cache
files without having to visit each file (my source tree has a few thousand
files). Also, when I turn on the global auto-parse mode, emacs tends to
freak out a bit and parse the same file over and over (about every 5
seconds) even though the file is read-only and not being modified.
Guess I'll stick with plain old tags.
Thanks for the J2EE advice as well... but in an embedded environment, Java
is not the language of choice...
