The fast-tags package

[Tags:bsd3, library, program, test]

Yet another tags program. Like hasktags, it uses its own parser rather than haskell-src or haskell-src-exts, so it's fast. It should be even faster than hasktags because it uses Text instead of String. It also understands hsc files, though not literate haskell. It's also less buggy than hasktags.

In addition, it will load an existing tags file and merge generated tags.

The intent is to bind it to vim's BufWrite autocommand to automatically keep the tags file up to date.

Readme for fast-tags

Readme for fast-tags-0.0.1

See vimrc for an example of how to keep the tags file up to date automatically.

Design decisions:

- Only top-level functions with type declarations are tagged.

Not supported:

- \ continuation in strings is not parsed correctly.

- Literate haskell.

- Infix operators.
