The classic Berkeley gid/lid tools for looking up variables in code
mkid' is a simple, fast, high-capacity, language-independent
identifier database tool. Actually, the term identifier’ is too
limiting–`mkid’ stores tokens, be they program identifiers of any
form, literal numbers, or words of human-readable text. Database
queries can be issued from the command-line, or from within emacs,
serving as an augmented tags facility.
