While accessing C functions/variables from assembly (especially for those DSP/low level guys out there) the usual exuberant ctags doesn't work.

The solution:

  1. Make a copy of the 'tags' file.
  2. Search and replace all variables and functions of C files with _variables and _functions in the copy file, say 'Tags' – for example, in Vim :g/\.c\>/s/^\(\l.\)/_\1/
  3. In Vim :set tags=tags,Tags
  4. Use Ctrl-] to sail through.

CommentsEdit

What on earth does this accomplish? How does this get the assembly symbols in the tags files? Why doesn't it work out-of-the-box (what problem does this solve)?
