Description Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2013-02-22 20:20:00 UTC
The ctags version shipped with FreeBSD lacks the -R (recursive) option that is extremely useful.

The patch I propose implements this feature by simply using ftw(3). It is a non intrusive patch as it changes nothing regarding the text analysis itself. I tested it with several pieces of C source code and filesystem links and seems to work fine.

The patch also updates the manual page.

Fix: Apply the attached patch.

It applies cleanly to FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE sources.

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Just try ctags -R :)
