NAME

gtags - create tag files for global.

SYNOPSIS

gtags [-ciIOqvw][-f file][-n number][dbpath]

DESCRIPTION

Gtags recursively collect the source files under the current directory, pickup symbols and write the cross-reference data into tag files ('GTAGS', 'GRTAGS', 'GSYMS' and 'GPATH'). You should execute this command at the root of the source tree.

C, C++, yacc, java, PHP and Assembly source files are supported. Files whose names end in '.c' or '.h' are assumed to be C source files. Files whose names end in '.c++' '.cc' '.cpp' '.cxx' '.hxx' '.hpp' '.C' '.H' are assumed to be C++ source files. Files whose names end in '.y' are assumed to be YACC source files. Files whose names end in '.java' are assumed to be Java source files. Files whose names end in '.php' '.php3' '.phtml' are assumed to be PHP source files. Files whose names end in '.s' or '.S' are assumed to be Assembly source files. Other files are assumed to be text files.

OPTIONS

The following options are available:
-c, --compact
Make GTAGS in compact format. This option does not influence GRTAGS and GSYMS, because they are always made in compact format.
--config[=name]
Show the value of config variable name. If name is not specified then show whole of config entry.
-f, --file file
Read from file a list of file names which should be considered as the candidate of source files. By default, all files under the current directory are considered as the candidate. If file is '-', read from standard input. File names must be separated by newline.
--gtagsconf file
Load user's configuration from file.
--gtagslabel label
label is used as the label of configuration file. The default is default.
-I, --idutils
Make index files for idutils(1) too.
-i, --incremental
Update tag files incrementally. You had better use global(1) with the -u option.
-n, --max-args number
Maximum number of arguments for gtags-parser(1). By default, gtags invokes gtags-parser with arguments as many as possible to decrease the frequency of invoking.
-O, --objdir
Use objdir as dbpath. If '$MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX' directory exists, gtags creates '$MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX/<current directory>' directory and makes tag files in it. If dbpath is specified, this options is ignored.
-q, --quiet
Quiet mode.
-v, --verbose
Verbose mode.
-w, --warning
Print warning messages.
dbpath
The directory in which tag files are generated. The default is the current directory. It is useful when your source directory is on a read only device like CDROM.

EXAMPLES

         $ ls -F
         Makefile      src/    lib/
         $ gtags -v
         $ global -x main
         main              10 src/main.c  main (argc, argv) {
 

FILES

'GTAGS'
Tag file for object definitions.
'GRTAGS'
Tag file for object references.
'GSYMS'
Tag file for other symbols.
'GPATH'
Tag file for path of source files.
'/etc/gtags.conf', '$HOME/.globalrc'
Configuration file.

ENVIRONMENT

The following environment variables affect the execution of gtags:
GTAGSCONF
If this variable is set, its value is used as the configuration file. The default is '$HOME/.globalrc'.
GTAGSLABEL
If this variable is set, its value is used as the label of configuration file. The default is default.
GTAGSCACHE
If this variable is set, its value is used as the size of B-tree cache. The default is 50000000 (bytes).
GTAGSFORCECPP
If this variable is set, each file whose suffix is 'h' is treated as a C++ source file.
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX
If this variable is set, '$MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX' is used as an object prefix directory. The default is '/usr/obj'.

CONFIGURATION

The following configuration variables affect the execution of gtags. You can see the default value for each variable with the --config option.
GTAGS(string)
If this variable is set, its value is used as the command line of the parser for GTAGS. The default is 'gtags-parser %s'.
GRTAGS(string)
If this variable is set, its value is used as the command line of the parser for GRTAGS. The default is 'gtags-parser -r %s'.
GSYMS(string)
If this variable is set, its value is used as the command line of the parser for GSYMS. The default is 'gtags-parser -s %s'.
icase_path(boolean)
Ignore case distinctions in the path. Suffixes check are affected by this capability.
langmap(comma separated list)
Language mapping. Each comma-separated map consists of the language name, a colon, and a list of file extensions. Default mapping is 'c:.c.h,yacc:.y,asm:.s.S,java:.java,cpp:.c++.cc.cpp.cxx.hxx.hpp.C.H,php:.php.php3.phtml'.
skip(comma separated list)
Gtags skips files which are listed in this list. As a special exception, gtags collect values from multiple skip variables. If the value ends with '/', it assumed as a directory and gtags skips all files under it. If the value start with '/', it assumed relative path from the root of source directory.
suffixes(comma separated list)
Suffixes of target source file. As a special exception, gtags collect values from multiple suffixes variables. This variable is obsoleted. If the langmap variable is defined gtags no longer refers this.

DIAGNOSTICS

Gtags exits with a non 0 value if an error occurred, 0 otherwise.

MESSAGE FORMAT

Verbose message has important level. The most important level is 0, the second is 1 and so on. All the message has level numbers leading blanks.

BUG

'GTAGS', 'GRTAGS' and 'GSYMS' are very large. In advance of using this command, check the space of your disk.

Assembly support is far from complete. It extracts only ENTRY() and ALTENTRY() from source file. Probably valid only for FreeBSD and Linux kernel source.

There is no concurrency control about tag files.
