Has anyone used symbol completion with the tags generated by ebrowse,
the C++ tagger? Does it work well? How does it compare to the
intelligent symbol completion prrovided by Visual C++? The Windows
version of Emacs does not appear to contain the Ebrowse tag
generator. Does anyone know if ebrowse works on Windows?

It is part of emacs-21-2 (I just checked)

Running ebrowse seems to work... but I get errors
about newlines in string constants when I run it over
some example code.

When I open the browse file I get an error:

File mode specification error: (error "Invalid escape character syntax")
