The trouble with tags


(Jon Seidel) #1

Just finished the Drew Neal video on navigating ruby files – awesome! However, I have a problem in that my tags no longer work: I get the dreaded

E433: No tags file

error, even though everything seems OK to me.

  1. I created a tags file, after nstalling exuberant-ctags; there is a tags file and it does contain the expected stuff.

  2. I inspected my tags definition and it seems OK to me:

    tags=tags;/,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/site_ruby/2.0.0/tags,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/site_ruby/2.0.0/x86_64-linux/tags,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/site_ruby/tags,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/2.0.0/tags,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/2.0.0/x86_64-linux/tags,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/tags,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/2.0.0/tags,~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/2.0.0/x86_64-linux/tags

  3. I’ve treid the <C-]> command at the ‘root’ level of my project as well as down in the directories and the result is always the same error.

Any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong?

Edit! Pilot error; directories got flummoxed.
