Script for vim (shows members of a struct like VC)

Is there a script... i dont know how it is called in english.. say, i have a struct with int a, int b and char c. And i also have a variable my_variable of this struct, so i want script to give me a tip, when i put a dot after my_variable. like this:

i write: my_variable.
comuter writes: [a,b,c] so i know that i can write my_variable.a, my_variable.b or my_variable.c

just like in MS VC,

it would be great if u help me to find similar script that shows which arguments a function takes (again just to remind me)

i write: inet_aton(
computer writes: [const char *cp, struct in_addr *inp]

I don't believe vi can do that as vi is a minimalist editor, you probably have to look for some specific IDE, try KDevelop that might have it but I haven't really used it. If you do find something on Unix that does have that I'd be very interested to know about it.

Xa, thanks for the link!
I've been browsing the Vim website's scripts section but found nothing like this.
