If you have a question on how to do something in Perl, or you need a Perl solution to an actual real-life problem, or you're unsure why something you've tried just isn't working... then this section is the place to ask. Post a new question!

However, you might consider asking in the chatterbox first (if you're a registered user). The response time tends to be quicker, and if it turns out that the problem/solutions are too much for the cb to handle, the kind monks will be sure to direct you here.

[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
[shmem]: maybe that supports ctags, check the documentation
