vifn(1)			    General Commands Manual		       vifn(1)

NAME
       vifn - edit by function name rather than	file name, uses	vi

SYNOPSIS
       vifn [filename/]function-name [...]

DESCRIPTION
       vifn is a crude script which uses output	from pmccabe(1)	to allow edit-
       ing by function name rather than	file name.   When  duplicate  function
       names  exist  in	more than one file, vifn cycles	through	each one.  Use
       filename/ when multiple files contain identically-named	functions  and
       you know	the one	you want.

BUGS
       vifn  uses  the file "pmccabe.out" in the current directory, or creates
       it if not found by running pmccabe on files in the  current  directory.
       Maybe this isn't	really a bug, but it could be better.

       vifn  does  not use the $EDITOR environment variable only because there
       are editors which misunderstand vi's +line convention for starting  the
       editor positioned at a specific line.
