I wrote a language module for ctags (http://ctags.sourceforge.net). For
those of you who aren't familiar with ctags, I found the following
description on the ctags website:
"Ctags generates an index (or tag) file of language objects found in
source files that allows these items to be quickly and easily located by
a text editor or other utility."
The language module I wrote is a very basic one, but it allows me to
easily access povray #macros and #declares (especially in large pov
files) in the vim editor, or any other editor if you wish.
I offered this module for inclusion in ctags
Until now nothing has happened with it. I am posting the source code
here for anyone who would like to try it or extend the functionality of
this language module or for anyone who likes to become a maintainer of
To compile ctags with povray support one must edit some files.
'povray.c' must be added to source.mak and the parser mentioned in
povray.c must be added to parsers.h. The ctags documentation gives good
instructions on the steps to take.
Ctags is not restricted to any operating system, so it doesn't matter if
you use windows or linux!
