GLOBAL-4.8.2 released.

Item posted by Shigio YAMAGUCHI <shigio> on Thu 11 Nov 2004 06:41:39 AM UTC.

Hello hackers,

It is my great pleasure to announce the release of GLOBAL-4.8.2.
You can download it from <>.


  • Postgres support ended.
  • (perl version of htags) was removed completely.
  • Config variable sed_command and sort_command were removed.

The sed(1) and sort(1) are not necessary any longer.

Fixed bugs:

  • Wrong output of 'global -Po' was fixed.

New features:

  • gctags(assembly language):

- In addition to `call', `jsr' is recognized as call instruction.
Although various call instructions exist like `bl' or `calls',
only `call' and `jsr' are used widely.
- Macros like ENTRY or EXT are taken up as reference,
when definitions exist in somewhere else.
- Warning is displayed when a comment is not closed.
- C_SYMBOL_NAME and C_ENTRY are recognized as a macro
which shows the start of a function.
- The string which is not closed finishes at the end of line.
This behavior is the same as GNU C preprocessor.
- The check of correspondence of "#if" and "#endif" was deleted.
This did not exist in version 4.8.

  • New directory '.snprj/' was added to the DEFAULTSKIP list.

This is the tag directory of Source-Navigator.

Good luck!
