  • ...but the amazing IntelliJ IDEA [intellij.com] IDE does this stuff (finding todos) for you -- customizable with regexen even. If you haven't used it before I strongly recommend it -- this is coming from a person who never thought he'd get away from xemacs for doing any sort of programming. If work didn't buy me a copy and I did Java programming in my spare time I might even buy a copy for myself -- it's that good.
