RCscope is a Cscope interface for the GNU Emacs 25 and later era.

Cscope ( is a powerful and efficient
code browsing and cross referencing tool for the C programming

Using Cscope, you can easily search for where symbols are used and
defined. Cscope is designed to answer questions like:

   Where is this variable used?
   What is the value of this preprocessor symbol?
   Where is this function in the source files?
   What functions call this function?
   What functions are called by this function?
   Where does the message "out of space" come from?
   Where is this source file in the directory structure?
   What files include this header file?

RCscope follows GNU Emacs `compilation-mode' and `occur-mode'
conventions. Output is displayed in a format similar to
`multi-occur'. Query results can be navigated using
`next-error'/`previous-error', just like `grep' and `occur'

RCscope automatically manages Cscope index files and index updates
(using projectile.el and the -R Cscope option), and uses persistent
Cscope processes that also support working on remote projects with

In addition to standard Cscope queries, RCscope also provides a
tree visualization of a function's callers in a format similar to
Steve Baker's Tree (
directory listing utility. If you need more complete control flow
visualization, look at GNU cflow:

RCscope is based on Robert Jarzmik's rscope:
