A long long time ago, I tried to write a parser/high-lighter for Ada & Source
navigator that would do what you are looking to do.  Unfortunately, my knowledge
of parsers and my knowledge of Ada are/were a hinderance on it.

I've got some code on sourceforge that you can download and take a look at if
you want.  Consider it Pre-Alpha to Alpha.  It does some things right, but the
very complicated inheritences and what-not it doesn't and won't.

The project homepage is at:

I'm not planning on maintaining it, but I'd hate to lose it because it is at
least a start in the right direction.  Let me know if you want to take over
maintainership of it.  Hopefully somebody can get it farther than what I can.

On a similar but side note, I did write a tool that would graphically display
the entire "use" list, as far as who is using what, and who is used by what.  I
used it to show how freaking complicated our one Ada application is wrt it's
inheritence listing.  It's a script set to run on Linux.  I'll see if I can dig
it out, it may be of interest.
