In rev, 1.9, line 88 should be:

if size is None:

--Preceding unsigned comment added by 00:04, February 23, 2010

I have not used the script but had a quick look. The Python code is:

    size = getattr(st, 'st_size', None)
    if not size:                             # (line 88)
	self.__diag("Could not stat tags file %s" % tagsFile)
	return None

If getattr() fails it returns None which is detected by "if not size". Looks good. JohnBeckett 01:14, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

I just noticed the edit summary for the above comment and I now see what is meant: If the tags file happens to be empty, getattr() will return zero which the original code would regard as an error. JohnBeckett 02:30, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

The above fix is incorporated in rev 1.10.

how do i set custom ctags command

In git-version from June 09, 2012 (commit 3acb0126a31927a2d90e7b904624545f5db51388) there is a bug with relativeSource path on line 181. Error on loading script. Here is fix:

<          relativeSource = os.path.splitdrive(source)[1]source[len(tagsDir):]
>          source = os.path.splitdrive(source)[1]
>          relativeSource = source[len(tagsDir):]
