I do use ctags but clearly not that well...

sorry for the late reply, but have you tried the GNU Global? I am currently
using it as my `better ctags' replacement and am quite satisfied so far.
a html generator is distributed along with it.

it is quite easy to use, for instance

the command line options above for `htags' is my personal choice.
it shoudl just work by typing `htags' or `htags --suggest' or `htags --suggest2'.

`htags --help' will list more options.

hopefully it would give better result.

best regards.
