OCTAVE-TAGS(1) Generate Emacs tags file from GNU Octave code


octave-tags [--include dir] file ...


octave-tags program is used to create a tag table file, in a format understood by emacs(1) and xemacs(1). octave-tags reads the files specified on the command line, and write a tag table (defaults: `TAGS') in the current working directory. Files specified with relative file names will be recorded in the tag table with file names relative to the directory where the tag table resides. Files specified with absolute file names will be recorded with absolute file names.

The --include option can be used to specify another directoy with Octave files for which tags shall be generated.
  Tags are generated for function names and for global variables. For global variables it doesn't work for more than one line global variables.
  Tags are also created for lines of the form '###key foobar' so that you can jump to this specific place just by typing `M-. foobar'. Note that tags are not generated for scripts so that you have to add a line by yourself of the form `###key <script-name>' if you want to jump to it.
