2 Processing Source Files

Before you can start browsing a class hierarchy, you must run the parser ebrowse on your source files in order to generate a Lisp data base describing your program.

The operation of ebrowse can be tailored with command line options. Under normal circumstances it suffices to let the parser use its default settings. If you want to do that, call it with a command line like:

ebrowse *.h *.cc

or, if your shell doesn’t allow all the file names to be specified on the command line,

ebrowse --files=file

where file contains the names of the files to be parsed, one per line.

When invoked with option ‘--help’, ebrowse prints a list of available command line options.
