bug#25585: 25.1; shell-script mode not providing proper support for find

From: Bob Hepple
Subject: bug#25585: 25.1; shell-script mode not providing proper support for finding variables at point
Date: Tue, 31 Jan 2017 00:39:23 +0000

One of the GNU Emacs maintainers eli-zaretski suggested that I post my
problem as a bug report:

'Report a bug against Shell-script Mode. It sounds like it doesn't
define proper support for finding variables at point, so xref uses a
generic facility, which is only mostly correct in this case.'

My original problem is as follows: (confirm that it also fails with emacs -Q):

So I've now got ctags(1) to understand bash variables as well as

Now I can jump to the defining location with M-. (ref-find-definitions)-
all fine and dandy.

The only fly in the ointment is that when a bash variable is
concatenated with literal text, M-. wants to look for the entire text.
eg if I M-. on the variable in:


... then it wants to search for foobar/bar/foo instead of just foobar.
It wouldn't be so bad if I could repeat-complex-command and edit the
search string but M-. doesn't appear to push the command there.

Short of re-writing all the code as "$foobar"/bar/foo is there something
I can set to fix this?

In case it's interesting, this is how I build TAGS:

ctags_opts='--regex-sh=/^[ \t]*(local|export|declare)?[ \t]*([A-Za-z0-9_-]+)=/\2/v,variable,variables/'

find address@hidden -name .svn -prune -o -print | while read F; do
    file -i "$F" | egrep -q 'shellscript|text/plain' && ctags -e --languages=sh -a "$ctags_opts" "$F"
