<h1>CTags Indexer</h1>
<p>The CTags indexer makes use of Exuberant CTags (version 5.5.4) to
create an index of the source and header files in your project. The
main advantage provided by CTags is that the index creation is very
quick. This makes it ideal to use on larger sized projects.&nbsp; <br>
</p>
<p>CTags, however, does not provide the same level of detail in
indexing as the Full C/C++ indexer. Specifically:<br>
</p>
<ul>
  <li>no cross reference information</li>
  <li>each file is processed on its own<br>
  </li>
  <li>limited preprocessing capabilties<br>
  </li>
</ul>
