Tagging files without extensions
« on: August 12, 2016, 03:51:05 PM »
Im having problems getting slickedit to tag the header files in Open Scene Graph. I opened the context tagging dialogue and created a new tag file and included all of the files in the include directory that I want tagged. The file list in the Context Tagging dialogue does not reflect this. How do I get slickedit to tag these files?

I'm using v19.

You'll need to set up a mapping to indicate that the extensionless files under that directory are C++.

Tools > Options > Languages > Extensionless File Manager > Add pattern...


In v21, the Extensionless File Manager is replaced with the Advanced File Mappings configuration panel, but the concept is very similar.
