Ctags configuration file

If you find yourself using certain parameters frequently with ctags, you may want to put them in a ctags configuration file. That way, ctags will read and use them every time it is invoked. Typically, the name of the configuration file is .ctags and it is placed in the home directory.

Place configurations and parameters, just like you would specify to the ctags program, one per line, in this file. That’s it!🙂

Note: As your ctags file grows, you might like to add comments to it. However, currently there is no support for adding comments. A feature request for this can be seen here.

Tried with: Exuberant Ctags 5.9 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
