    Hi all

    CTAGS seems to be great utility and I would love to integrate it with vim when I browse source code. The only problem is that ctags does not support TAL - Tandem Application Language.

    Has anyone created a user-defined language-parser for TAL files? I'm not sure how to go about writing one. 

    Thanks & Regards

      i'm not aware of any TAL support for Ctags. in fact, i'd never even heard of TAL until you mentioned it! it's pretty easy to write your own basic regular expression-based support if that's likely to be adequate (most languages aren't line-based, which the regular expression support assumes, but most programmers write programs as if they were, so it doesn't matter as much as you'd think, and some of the built-in parsers are line-based without many people ever noticing).

      anyway, if you're still interested in TAL support, raise a bug on the bug tracker.

      (i'll ask an admin to close this forum, because no-one reads it.)
