All C and C++ source and header files can be browsed using the tags in the files. All of the open C and C++ source and header files are scanned for available tags (a "tag" refers to a function definition, structure, macro, etc.).
Choose the type of the tag you want to view in the Tag menu on the Browser toolbar. If the tag type is function or class, you will have to further select the file for which you want to view the tag. Then, choose the tag (function, class member or the other tags) from the Tag drop-down combination box. The editor will take you to that particular file and highlight the line that contains the tag.
The following tag types are available:
File mode operation: If there is no project open, then Anjuta is in File mode. In this mode, Anjuta keeps track of opened files only. Anjuta will know all of the tags available in these opened file(s).
Project mode operation: If there is a project open, Anjuta will scan for tags in all of the source and header files of the project. This way it is possible to go to any function definition, structure definition, class definition etc. without manually opening the file. You don't even have to know which file that tag is found in (except in the case of function definitions).
You don't have to worry about the synchronization and update of the tag database. Anjuta will take care of everything. You just have to decide which tag you want to go to!
