#7 Help Needed


Good Afternoon,

I am trying to get the CTag feature of UltraEdit to work
and have been unsuccessful so far.

I have downloaded and unzipped the .exe and placed it
in my ultraedit directory. Then, in ultraedit, when I
select [projects][ctag option] I browse to the .exe and
select the one I downloaded. I did not change the CTag
parameters - do I have to do this? If so, to what? I am
working with .c and .h files. Also, what do I set the
default ctag file to?

Then I select [ok] and go back to [projects] - this time
selecting [create ctag file]. When this is selected,
nothing happens. This is verified by selecting on a
function definition and selecting either of method of
[search][find symbol] or [f11]. Error message "Could not
find TAG" - so, I then selected multiple different items
that I know are repeated in other files and still the same

Please respond ASAP - use of the ctag option while
developing my project would be great.

Thanks in advance.

    I have never used UltraEdit, so I cannot comment on how to
    use it. However, I presume that the [create ctag file]
    should be creating a tags file. Do you find a file by the
    name of "tags" in the current directory (or whatever
    directory is configured)? Are you running Exuberant Ctags,
    rather than ctags delivered with your O/S (run the command
    "ctags --version" from the command line)?
