Emacs/vi TAGS tools


Do you use otags III for generating emacs TAG file to browse codebase? If not, can you recommend a tool to generate TAGS?

I strongly recomment using merlin instead of tags. It’s infinitely superior.


Thank you. I’ll look into merlin tools. :slight_smile:

Could someone maybe explain how using Merlin removes the need for tags?

Merlin provides autocompletion (based on proper scoping, not just names), type inference of what’s under the cursor, access to doc, and jump-to-def (even across libraries if they install their source files). How to make this work is explained in merlin’s wiki.
