Lazarus / View / Code Browser / Levels / Show identifiers: execvp
Disable 'show packages' and 'show units'
It will show:

Procedure Execvp(ProgName:String;Args:TStrings)
function execvp(__file:Pchar;__argv:PPchar):longint

Move the mouse over the entries to see a hint about its location and/or
double click to jump to the source.
