1067How to use Tag file feature?
- Mar 29, 2004I am working on a modification to the FreeType project.
(www.freetype.org). The library source tree resides in:
The tree is big and has several folders nested deep.
What I would expect as a user is go to the top-level folder and issue
a 'generate tag files' command. I do so and me creates a tag file in
the root of the folder. I was expecting that it would create a tag
file in every folder.
Now, I have the following file open in ME:
I would expect to move my cursor over a tag and hit 'ESC-t' to go to
the definition of that tag. This, however, does not work. That is
because there is not tag file in the directory in which the file is
So this means that I must somehow (how???) load the tag file
separately. This would add more work on behalf of the
user---considering especially that all I want to do is double click a
file in the file-manager and quickly search for a tag.
Can someone please give me a few pointers on how to use the tag file
feature efficiently across a big source tree?
