I've been in programming for over 15 years...programming and s‎crip‎ting languages: There are not too many I haven't used! My main focus is custom tools and integration for third party software to support data center operations. Perl, however, I've seemed to have always used sparingly (maybe because I always had someone else available...certainly not out of a WISH to not be skilled!), so I'm hoping for some assistance on some real-world examples I currently have, and to assist others as my skill set increases.

[Lady_Aleena]: ctags?
[shmem]: ctags is a program which (recursively) extracts the symbols from source and stores them in a one-file database. This allows you to query the locations where these symbols (e.g. a subroutine name) are used anywhere in the source code tree...
[shmem]: ...from inside the editor.
[shmem]: apt-get install exuberant-ctags
[Lady_Aleena]: I think I heard vim has a big learning curve.
[shmem]: then in the root of your source tree run: ctags -R
[shmem]: you get a file named tags where all symbols and the places where they are used are listed
[Lady_Aleena]: geany may not support that.
[shmem]: I see that there is a plugin geany-plugin- codenav
