Installing the Taglist plugin
RequirementsThe taglist plugin requires Vim version 6.0 and above. The taglist plugin will work on all the platforms where the exuberant ctags utility and Vim are supported (this includes MS-Windows and Unix based systems).
The taglist plugin relies on the exuberant ctags utility to dynamically generate the tag listing. You can download the exuberant ctags utility from http://ctags.sourceforge.net The exuberant ctags utility must be installed in your system to use this plugin. You should use exuberant ctags version 5.0 and above. The taglist plugin doesn't use or create a tags file and there is no need to create a tags file to use this plugin. The taglist plugin will not work with the GNU ctags or the Unix ctags utility.
This plugin relies on the Vim "filetype" detection mechanism to determine the type of the current file. You have to turn on the Vim filetype detection by adding the following line to your .vimrc file:
This plugin will not work if you run Vim in the restricted mode (using the -Z command-line argument).
The taglist plugin uses the Vim system() function to invoke the exuberant ctags utility. If Vim is compiled without the system() function then you cannot use the taglist plugin. Some of the Linux distributions (Suse) compile Vim without the system() function for security reasons. The following Vim command should display 1:
