ECB = Emacs Code Browser, quick to set up, my head is less befuddled with code/file locations

;ECB = Emacs Code Browser
;Sometimes there are too many source code files, directories and lines.
;ECB turns emacs into a more friendly source code editor/browser.
;Emacs is zippy and lightweight and stable when compated with Eclipse/Netbeans/Visual Studio
;The install doc is slightly scary however the install is really easy.
; there's just one easy to install dependancy which is CEDET (= Collection of Emacs Development Environment Tools)

; get cedet, unpack it (I'm working in ~/src) and build it with `make`
; add settings in your .emacs (see below)
; get ecb, unpack it
; add settings in your .emacs (see below): add to load-path and (require 'ecb)
; restart emacs
; you may be prompted to confirm some initialisation actions
; in emacs: tools -> Start Code Browser ECB

(load-file "~/src/cedet-1.0pre6/common/cedet.el")
(global-ede-mode 1) ; Enable the Project management system
(semantic-load-enable-code-helpers) ; Enable prototype help and smart completion
(global-srecode-minor-mode 1) ; Enable template insertion menu

(add-to-list 'load-path
(require 'ecb)
;(require 'ecb-autoloads)

;; screenshots
; Code editing windows
; File and dir list, file source control status shown.
; Code method/symbol semantic view.
