in reply to Editing features for advanced users

An excellent tutorial! Very nice, practical examples, something that's often missing.

Unfortunately, the area you skimmed was the area I know little about: pltags. I _don't_ have ctags experience, and even the ctags documentation seems to assume I have ctags experience.

A few tests on my system shows that this creates a tags file in the present directory. How do I tell vim which tags file to use if I'm elsewhere on the system? Do I have to run pltags over a script that calls outside functions, or just the scripts/modules that hold those outside functions? Is the tags file incremental or replaced? Where can I locate documentation for (There doesn't appear to be a man page)? Should I cron job this sucker so that it keeps up with updating modules?

Assistance appreciated.

    I have only used ctags, so this response only deals with that.

    To ctags, you can specify whether to append or replace the tagfile, where to store the resulting tagfile, what to tag, etc. This the script that i use to update the tag files.

    set tags[-+]?= is how to set the the location of a tag file in vim. You can use autocmd to set the tag file(s) based on directory or file name. See :h au | :only (vim online help on au in the full window) for more information. Note that the au command understands only the shell regex.
