Intelligent ctags for perl in vim

by imp (Priest)
on Jul 01, 2006 at 20:57 UTC ( #558802=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

imp has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm looking for a way to have ctags handle perl scripts/modules intelligently - by building the tags based on the modules that are loaded. Does anyone know a good way to do this?

Solution criteria:

  • Uses the specified perl binary (from the shebang)
  • Uses the module that is in the @INC path for this perl
  • Preferrably descends into modules loaded by the explicitly used modules.

      Great - thank you for sharing.

      I looked over the source and it appears to be what I am looking for. Look forward to playing with it later.

    Imp, Are there any more ideas where that one came from? osfameron's implementation ROCKS!! It allows me to flit freely in and out between my garden of code and the jungle outside the gate.

    Devel::PerlySense is supposed to do this in emacs and waits for somebody using the API for a VI frontend.

    Cheers Rolf
