I personally prefer using ctags and (g)vim.

On your shell command line, type:
ctags -R .
vim comm.c      (or 'gvim comm.c' if you are on Win32 or X-Windows)

Then you move the cursor over the keyword and press Ctrl-], vim will
jump to file/line containing the declaration of your keyword (var, func,
#define, struct... anything). If there is more than one keyword with the
same name on your code, then ":ts" will be better. If you use emacs
instead, the hotkey is Meta-.

Exuberant Ctags is available for download (source, bin-OS/2 and
bin-Win32) on its website:

Vim is available at:
