I have just released version 2.1 of Exuberant Ctags, which now provides
Java support, as well as auto-detection of the language (e.g. C, C++,
Java) of the source files. This now allows the user to use a command line
such as "ctags *", and have ctags only examine those source files which it
understands, while ignoring non-source files (object files, etc).
Exuberant Ctags can be obtained from the following locations:
Please note that the timing of this release was in no way intended to
upstage Claudio Fleiner's announcement of "jtags" yesterday. The timing on
this is purely coincidental, as I have been working on adding Java support
for several weeks now. I would like to thank Claudio Fleiner for making
his jtags command-line compatible with Exuberant Ctags.
One distinct difference between Exuberant Ctags and Claudio's jtags is that
Exuberant Ctags is released under the GPL, whereas jtags is owned by IBM.
