Freescope integration with VIM
Since release 0.2.0, freescope provides a command line mode that emulates
command line interface. This allows freescope to be integrated
with other applications that supports already communication with cscope.
This page provides information for integrating freescope and
vim and gives useful vim macros that you
can use for making source navigation even easier.
Before making the following modifications in your .vimrc file, make
sure that you compiled vim with support for
Adding a freescope database in .vimrc
Add the following lines to your .vimrc file:
cs add whatever_path/freescope.out
The line "set csprg=freescope" specifies freescope as source browsing
application, and "cs add whatever_path/freescope.out" indicates which
freescope database must be used.
Setting the cst and csto variable causes
vim to search the
freescope database before any tag file.
Useful vim macros
Normally, you can query the freescope database by entering a
vim command like:
:cscope find g a_symbol
which would result in the global definition for a_symbol being searched.
The following macros and functions can be added to your .vimrc for
quick and handy database queries.
if (a:arg == "s")
exe "normal :cscope find s"a"^M"
elseif (a:arg == "g")
exe "normal :cscope find g"a"^M"
elseif (a:arg == "c")
exe "normal :cscope find c"a"^M"
elseif (a:arg == "f")
exe "normal :cscope find f"a"^M"
elseif (a:arg == "e")
exe "normal :cscope find e"a"^M"
elseif (a:arg == "i")
exe "normal :cscope find i"a"^M"
"Find function calling this function
map fc :cscope find c
map fs :cscope find s
map fg :cscope find g
map ff :cscope find f
"Find egrep pattern
map fe :cscope find e
"Find file #including this file
map fi :cscope find i
Note: "^M" correspond to the carriage return character. To enter this special
character, type CTRL-V followed by your carriage return key.
Simply position the cursor on a symbol in one of your vim buffers, then type
one of the following commands for making a query with that particular symbol:
fs: find all occurences of this symbol.
fg: find this symbol global definitions.
fc: find all places where this function is called.
ff: find all files matching this pattern.
fe: find this egrep pattern.
fi: find all places where this file is included.
