I've been using CodeBrowser for over a year, mostly for Perl. It streamlines huge programs and is better than normal folding available with vim, etc. since you define what the top-level "name" of each folded element is. So, instead of seeing

+ sub this() {
+ sub that() {

your top-level can be fold names like

THIS: a routine to do x, y, and z

THAT: does whatever this() can't

In other words, a year later when you want to fix something, you know exactly which tag to click to expand and can drill down quickly to the place you need to find.

I highly recommend CodeBrowser. The only problem is that it's not being actively maintained, so what you see is what you get.
