Try Emacs etags.  No clue how to set it up in MS-WinXX but in MacOSX/Un*x bash,

cd ccl-1.11
find * -type d -iname .svn -prune -o -type f -print0 | xargs -0 etags -a
emacs —eval '(xref-find-definitions "main”)'

then in Emacs, interactively type M-. to “point harder” at defined C or LISP symbols.


P.S. M-x grep is also useful, Emacs makes grep hits clickable as soon as they appear onscreen.

P.P.S. Again, no clue about MS-WinXX command prompt but you might try
etags * *\* *\*\* *\*\*\* *\*\*\*\*
or perhaps etags **\* or similar if they support double star syntax for wild-inferiors,
then run emacs and manually M-. or M-x grep and so on.
