NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       etags - Generates a tags file for the emacs or mule editor

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       etags [-a  | -append] [-C  | -c++] [-D  | -no-defines] [-i
       tagsfile2  |  -include=tagsfile2]  [-o  tagsfile  |  -output=tagsfile]
 [-S  | -ignore-indentation]  [-H   |  -help]
       [-V  | -version] filename...

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Appends  output  to an existing vi-format tags file. (Supports
 operation of the emacs editor in vi  mode.)   Treats
       files  with or extensions as C++, rather than C, code. The
       etags command always treats files with extensions  as  C++
       code.  Does not create tag entries for C preprocessor definitions.
  If many header files  are  tagged,  using  this
       option  may  make  the tags file much smaller.  Includes a
       note in the  output  tags  file  to  indicate  that,  when
       searching for a tag, one should also consult the tagsfile2
       tags file.  Explicitly names the output tags  file;  overrides
  the  default  name, which is TAGS.  Instructs etags
       not to rely on indentation  to  determine  nesting  level.
       Currently,  this  means not to assume that a closing brace
       in the first column is the final brace in  a  function  or
       structure  definition  in  C  or  C++  code.  Prints usage
       information.  Prints the current version of the program.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  etags  program  creates  a tag table file in a format
       understood by the emacs editor.  The  program  understands
       the  syntax  of  C,  C++, Fortran, Pascal, and Lisp source
       files. It reads the source files specified on the  command
       line and writes a tag table (named TAGS by default) in the
       working directory. Recognition of the language used in  an
       input  file  is  based  on the filename extension and file
       contents; there are no options  for  specifying  the  language.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  etags  program  is  software  distributed by the Free
       Software Foundation.
