Command-line tool that quickly searches through C/C++

fccf is a command-line tool that quickly searches through C/C++ source code in a directory based on a search string and prints relevant code snippets that match the query.


  • Quickly identifies source files that contain a search string.
  • For each candidate source file, builds an abstract syntax tree AST.
  • Visits the nodes in the AST, looking for function declarations, classes, enums, variables etc., that match the user’s request.
  • Pretty-prints the identified snippet of source code to the terminal.
