The fast-tags package

[ Tags: bsd3, development, haskell, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Yet another tags program. Like hasktags, it uses its own parser rather than haskell-src or haskell-src-exts, so it's fast. It understands hsc files, though not literate haskell.

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.

- Lots of files are not in UTF8.  Use ByteString with a lenient decoder?

- \ continuation in strings is not parsed correctly.

- Literate haskell.

- Entire module indented.  But who does this?
