You get lucky here, CVS uses RCS to store its files. So if it can work
for RCS, it will also mostly work for CVS. Of course, CVS adds another
layer of features, so there might be more capability in CVS mode.

Oh, Chandru, why do you use RCS instead of CVS? Just curious. I use RCS alone
when I play sysadmin, so if I mess up configuring something, I have a
fallback plan, and also to document changes made to a system. But for
software development, CVS seems much nicer unless you have only a few files.

There is also cscope which does some of what people are asking for here,
perhaps it could be adapted.

If simplicity worked, the world would be overrun with insects.
