    Angry ctags problem

    Hello,

    I have a really huge source organised in a complicated dir. tree. I am using Vim editor and ctags to make a tagfile of that source code. Now, the problem is that ctags seems not to have processed every detail it should (i used ctags -R) since, although i can jump using ctrl-] to a class header (for example there is a line G4Step* blah= new G4Step(blah), it jumps to a /blah/blah/blah/.../blah/G4Step.hh, as it should), i can not jump to a method declaration within that class
    (example: ctrl-] for blah->GetMyDoughnutsQuickly() will not get me to a declaration of GetMyDoughnutsQuickly() saying that tag doesn' t exist, eventhough the tag G4Step does exist).

    Now this makes me mad as hell! Anybody knows how to help? Or should I start using cscope, global, ...?

    try --extra=+q

    On a second note, have you tried kscope (kde C ide using cscope and ctags)? I've been using vi for quite some time and although I've not used kscope much (just started my first project with it) it's very nice. You might give it a try some time if you haven't.

    Thanks, valis, but --extra=+q didn' t work (by the way what is it actually for? i din not quite understand from the manual whether it serves to find a particural method in a particular class using class::method pattern or for something else?). But I figured something strange. The class header has several public: fields, and ctags finds only methods declared in the last public: field, skipping the previously declared methods as if they do not exist.

    Oh, I solved the poroblem. Actual method declarations were hidden in .icc files which were included by the header .hh file. Since, by ctags by default does not scan for .icc files it had to be included with --langmap option. I have also put .icc in -h option to treat it as a header.

    Now, I had this problem when using Geant4 in my code. (This is for google searches of the type: "Geant4 ctags" :-)
