Hi Ardi,

maybe a I'm a bit late and the solution is not exactly what you're
asking for. But you can a look at:

There is a function 'goto_keyline' (keybinding Ctrl + g) where you get a
dialog with a list of all functions (and other definitions, etc). It
also uses regex-patterns and you can define them for every language you

With 'goto_related_keyline' (F12) you can go to the function of the word
under the caret. For this function you have to define a project.
Depending on the amount of files in the project this can be a bit slow.

With Ctrl+Shift+g you can jump back.
