I just set up exuberant ctags, which is a code symbol database for Vim
that lets you do things like "go to definition" that are often limited
to IDEs.

Tim Pope documents a way to set it up to run automatically through Git
hooks, so you never have to think about its maintenance.

Once this is set up you can use the "g]" normal mode command to go to
the definition of a symbol.
