Sorry about this. I totally forgot this email. Could you tell me how to use the langmap configuraiton variable? I tried to search in GNU Global manual but it does not show how to write and use a configuration ffile for GNU Global.

How about adding new configuration variable 'langmap_glob'?
This variable has almost same syntax as 'skip' variable.

For example,


is re-writable as follows.


If the pattern begin with '/', it is a path name from the
current directory.  Additionally, if the pattern ends with
'/', it is assumed as a directory, and every file under it
is treated as a C++ source file.

For example, if you want to treat every file under 'c++/4.8'
as a C++ source file, then


$ cd /usr/include
$ gtags

What do you think?

In /usr/include/c++/4.8/ is standard header files for C++ like iostream, string, map, set... The problem is, none of the headers has an extension, and Global just ignores them. It seems like currently GNU Global has the only options to specify a file that contains a list of files to be parsed. But then, we have to manually specify which file to include, which is tedious. For example, I want to generate GTAGS database for /usr/include, and it contains /usr/include/c++/4.8/; I have no choice but to list all files under /usr/include and save all the file paths into a file then feed it to Global via -f option.

Ideally, we should be able to force Global to parse everything under specified directories.
