bug#22306: 24.5; Unhide --no-line-directive Documentation

From: James Muchow
Subject: bug#22306: 24.5; Unhide --no-line-directive Documentation
Date: Mon, 4 Jan 2016 19:41:28 +0000

This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgment at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug, and
the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give a recipe
starting from `emacs -Q':

In trying to create a TAGS file, etags would process the
#line directive in various source files and produce TAGS 
files that were unusable because the "file name" included
would be unavailable causing the tags-search to exit before
having seen all files.

I spent a lot of time coming up with a solution to avoid
any files that contained a line directive when the solution
I really needed was already present: --no-line-directive.
It is, however, undocumented and thus the only way to know
about it is to download the source. I downloaded the source
to try and find out what etags was doing wrong with #line
when I discovered this undocumented option.

I see from the source that the --no-line-directive is hidden
by the PRINT_UNDOCUMENTED_OPTIONS_HELP; I think it would be
helpful for others to remove this restriction.
If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
For information about debugging Emacs, please read the file
