While browsing the Cscope homepage I found out about Kscope a KDE based GUI for Cscope. The screenshots looked inviting enough for me to quickly grab it. After a little tweak to a shell script that assumes /bin/sh to be bash (ouch) it worked perfectly. Being a Cscope user myself, I found this GUI to be extremely powerful, a great frontend. It has interesting features with the ability to use Graphviz and graphically display call graphs, call trees, ease of querying, save cscope queries. Overall adds a whole new dimension to Cscope.
I was quickly able to create a project to index ON kernel (/usr/src/uts). Here are a few screenshots:
Partial call graph showing functions calling door_ki_upcall and functions called by it:
Another screenshot of the call tree from the same function:

It should be an interesting project to write a Netbeans plugin with these features.
