It's a bit off-topic, but my literate-programming tool, noweb, comes
with approximate cross-referencers for C, Icon, Pascal, Standard ML,
TeX, and yacc source. I've been trying to find a student who wants to
make it possible to exploit fully accurate cross-reference information
from a compiler, but so far no takers...

When generating HTML, noweb takes each use to a definition, which goes
to an index, which goes to all uses and definitions. Tolerable.
