    Hi

    I'm trying to set ctags to work with some old FORTRAN 77 programs.
    I'm in Windows 2000, vim 6.1 and exctags 5.3.1.
    The programs are for VAX FORTRAN 77 as of 1988. Writen with tabs and 132 columns line length.

    I imagined that after creating the ctags file I could <ctrol>] on a variable name and zap!: appear looking at it's definition. Even if that definition is located in a different file, one of my .DES record DEScription file.
    But it works only for the variables defined insode the programs, not for those defined in include files.

    The ctags program is processing the .DES files but no tags are generated for them.

    I studied all the available ctags options and finally got this command where I specify all the options:

    C:\vim\ctags531\ctags -f c:\p\tags -h ".des.DES.rec.REC.reg.REG" --sort=foldcase --totals=yes --verbose=yes --langmap=fortran:.for.des.rec.reg.FOR.DES.REC.REG --languages=fortran --fortran-types=+bcefiklLmnpstv *.for *.des *.reg *.rec *.DES > runCtagsLog.txt

    The command output (pruned) is this:

      Option: --langmap=fortran:.for.des.rec.reg.FOR.DES.REC.REG
        Setting Fortran language map: .for .des .rec .reg .FOR .DES .REC .REG
      Option: --languages=fortran
        Enabled languages: fortran
      Option: --fortran-types=+bcefiklLmnpstv

    The I open a program and <ctrol>] a name and, if it was defined in an include file I get a "tag not found" message in vim.

    What am I dping wrong? This is my first contact with tags files of any sort and I'm vexed.

    TIA

      if you're still having trouble, please raise a bug in the bug tracker, with a small example (so that maintainers who don't know FORTRAN will be more likely to be able to help). no-one actually reads these forums.

      (i'll ask an admin to close this forum.)
