Exuberant ctags and Vim

Exuberant ctags is simply great. And VIM gets a nice plugin that uses it.

There is a new VIM plugin in town. The "Tag List" plugin can be used to efficiently browse through your source files.

I downloaded it, played with it and liked it. The underlying tagger is exuberant Ctags. I started exploring other editors mainly because I didn’t find a tagger for other languages. This Ctags support all languages I use currently.

I think I switch to other editors once in a while for these:

  1. Do you know that when you use ctags in VIM, you have functionality comparable to code completion available with Ctrl-P ?

    Maybe not as good as in PythonWin as it does it only based on few letters...

  2. I find myself editing my scripts in VIM but trying out code snippets and importing and running modules using the excellent PyCrust (now part of wxPython).
