Each file name on the command line tells
ebrowse to parse
This command line switch specifies that file contains a list of file names to parse. Each line in file must contain one file name. More than one option of this kind is allowed. You might, for instance, want to use one file for header files, and another for source files.
ebrowse finds no file names on the command line, and no
‘--file’ option is specified, it reads file names from standard
input. This is sometimes convenient when
ebrowse is used as part
of a command pipe.
This option lets you specify search paths for your input files. paths is a list of directory names, separated from each other by a either a colon or a semicolon, depending on the operating system.
It is generally a good idea to specify input files so that header files are parsed before source files. This facilitates the parser’s work of properly identifying friend functions of a class.
