Asterisk Understanding the source code

When studying the Asterisk source code the following suggestions may prove useful:

Running CTAGS on the Asterisk source code then
loading the Asterisk source code into an editor that supports CTAGS will create an environment where
you can just highlight a variable and get a list of everywhere its used and see where and how its defined.

List of editors supporting CTAGS: http://ctags.sourceforge.net/tools.html
For Windows users, the open source jEdit editor works well.

An alternative is to use this Web based Cross Referenced Source Code Viewer
but its not as full featured as the CTAGS/editor solutions.
