    To my knowledge, the only tutorial is in book form. It's called "Code Reading" by Diomidis Spinellis.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    No, I mean I need to learn how to read source code in multiple files, like the files that you are downloading from sourceforge.net.

    I know you can do it by reading from main, then track down from function to function. I mean it must be some smart way to read the source code in multiple files especially if you are downloading files in couples mb size.
