That is Cool!

So, I was just playing with NetBeans 5.0, and I accidentally found what might just be my new favorite feature. If you hold down the Control key while you have a source file open, referencable items show up as hyperlinks when you mouse over them. By "referencable items," I mean anything that you could click on and hit Alt+G to jump to the source. As you'd expect, clicking on the link has the same effect as Alt+G; it just looks slicker.

Perhaps I'm so wowed because I found the feature by accident, but let me tell you, if NetBeans could do that in C, especially with #include files, I would be hooked for life! (While I'm wishing, I also want to be able to share CVS diffs via the collab tool.)

Next time I'm in Prague, I'll have to stop by and give the whole team a big hug.
