searching functions in emacs dire mode
 
many times i want to check out the usage of a function, for example : scanf
of course i can read the info or man documents
but sometimes i'd like to see real examples where the functions are being used

so, i have a directory /home/me/src where there are many source codes
i dired into it in emacs
and i want to launch a search : scanf
hoping it would list all the ocasions of scanf and their positions
and then i can just jump directly to that place and see how the function is used there

kinda like the results of google :p

how can i do that ?

merci :)
