Package description for 'ctags'

Exuberant Ctags -- Sourcefile indexer

 Exuberant Ctags is a multilanguage reimplementation of the much-underused
 ctags(1) program and is intended to be the mother of all ctags programs. It
 generates indexes of source code definitions which are used by a number of
 editors and tools. The motivation which drove the development of Exuberant
 Ctags was the need for a ctags program which supported generation of tags
 for all possible C language constructs (which no other ctags offers), and
 because most were easily fooled by a number of preprocessor contructs.
