Re: Bug Report (Feature request?) etags (GNU Emacs 21.1)

I made etags aware of the #line directives that can be found in
automatically generated sources, for example .y-->.c, or .web-->.[hc].

A consequence of my changes is that the memory footprint of etags
increased dramatically for big file, as it needs to keep all tags in
memory until all files are parsed.  In general this shouldn't be a
problem: tags files are relatively small.

Those of you who are interested, please try the new version in the CVS
or at <ftp://fly.cnuce.cnr.it/pub/etags.c.gz>.

There is an undocumented option for obtaining the old behaviour of
ignoring #line directives, but I won't tell you, so you will be forced
to read the source if you need that, and while cursing me you'll
remember to tell me that you had a problem :-)

Next change to do is the "don't parse xxx.c when both xxx.c and xxx.y
are given".
