Plans for the future


Plans of the highest priority are listed first.

  • Offering three environment variables which define individual default options for global(1), gtags(1) and htags(1), respectively. (GLOBAL_OPTIONS, GTAGS_OPTIONSS, HTAGS_OPTIONS)
  • Three options for specifying the system default of global(1).
    -E (--extended-regexp), -N (--project), -m (--match-case).
  • A project basis configuration mechanism. (gtags.conf, gtags.label)
  • Make the --literal option available to commands which accept a pattern.
  • Support of ack style output format.
  • Remove restriction of the length of a variable identifier (currently < 512).
  • Treat variable definitions as a definition tag (GTAGS).
  • Support of tag type. (like Exuberant Ctags)
  • Recognition of the range of procedures.
  • Support of class hierarchy.
  • Support of tag stack per window. Currently tag stack is only one per emacs. (gtags.el)
  • ANSI C mode in C parser.
  • Support of glob pattern for path name search (global -P).
  • The --dynamic option generates not only index pages but also source code pages.
  • Ttags(1) command.
    Ttags(1) is similar to htags(1) but generates a TeX source for a book instead of a hypertext.
  • Support of multi-bytes code set.
  • Rewrite built-in parsers using flex(1) completely.
  • Rewrite the CGI program using C language instead of Perl.
  • Support of gtags-query-replace (gtags.el).
  • Visual interface using GUI.
Any contributions are appreciated. Please see contribution.
