Description Veillard, Daniel 1999-10-05 18:43:54 EDT
unless one add -e to the ctags command line (emacs
compatibility mode)
Comment 1 Preston Brown 2000-02-10 15:46:59 EST
I had no problem using the regular 'tags' file produced by ctags with vim.
However, the TAGS file produced for emacs via the '-e' option worked as well.
This is ctags 3.2, included in 6.0 and later.
Comment 2 khp 2000-03-03 20:34:59 EST
I have the same trouble. I'm on RH 6.1 with vim 5.4 and ctags-3.2-1. The problem
goes away when I do:
:set notagbsearch
or when I generate the tags file outside of vim with the -e option. Since other
bug reports seem to indicate that sort has changed recently to be POSIX
compliant, perhaps vim expects the sorting one way while the new `sort' sorts
another? The question then would be: Can I configure vim to call `sort' with the
right backwards compatible options?
