Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The syntax highlight won't show me the defination of a symbol if it is defined in some other header file, uptill I know it will show the syntax in seperate colour not the symbol defination or many more functionalities which is being provided by source insight, i wanted to have a perfect equivalent with gui in linux.
I have already tried my hand with cscope and I also found it useful the only drawback of cscope is you have to enter the perfect function/variable name completely, in many cases the variable names and function names are longer one and cumbursome to even write or remember, in such a scenerio it won't help me, i want the feature almost nearby to source insight, source insight is almost near by to visual studio of microsoft if you have used it.
Thanx for your reply, my problem has remained still in unresolved state
I've been using cscope for many years - it has great power :-)
I often type in a partial identifier and use .* to give me wild cards
or [aA] to ignore case search for the letter a or A in an identifer
I like it because after if finds the symbols - I can filter out (or in) subsets of the lines found before visiting the files.
You can also merge multiple searches together, or import previous searches.
On Windows I use Source Insight extensively on very large C projects, many tens of thousands of files in hundreds of Mb of source, and find it very good. As it creates project specific databases the symbol lookups are very fast and accurate. Most of the other editors above simply could not do this.
IMVHO the two possible equivalents for large projects would be Slickedit or perhaps Eclipse, although other editors may be fine for small projects.
