Hello cscope team and all,
first of all, thanks for writing cscope. I've been using it for a long
time, it's become an invaluable tool for me.
I regularly have to dig through large source trees where people made up
non-standard extensions for include files, like .pri or .use. Unless
they're in the top directory of the tree, cscope -Rb ignores these
I'd like to propose the attached patch (against cscope 15.7a) that adds
a command line option -x ext to declare that files with .ext should be
parsed by cscope. Of course, -x can be used multiple times to add
Please give me some feedback about this idea and the patch. I'm happy to
change things so that the patch can finally be merged.
