I still can't get why you want to do this or how it would make anything
easier. I doubt that having a bigass file to scroll up and down will satisfy
your curiosity. The way to do it is to pick a function and go backward
through all its callers or forward through all its calls. If you make a
single file from all code chances are you'll just end up more confused
'cause you won't know which function came from what file originally if you
don't spend a lot of energy designing the merging script. I suspect that
energy is better spent searching the code manually in the first place. Get
yourself a tabbed code editor with file searching capabilities. I use
notepad++ <http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/>, simple yet flexible with
auto completion and goodies.
