Thank you,

Unfortunatley I am a real newbie and I am not sure how to use this etags
exe. I am just looking for the 'src/TAGS' file, but it is not clear to me
how to generate this.

to create TAGS files on a Windows system, you need to run etags.exe which is
supposed to be in your 'bin' directory of emacs.

You can get the Emacs source tarball emacs-20.7.tar.gz from and its mirrors.  There you will find a directory
emacs-20.7/src.  The TAGS file doesn't exist, but I guess "make tags"
might help -- at least on a Unix system.  Not sure how to create the
TAGS file on a Windows system.

For finding my way around *.el files, I like to use M-x find-function

But tags are very useful for other kinds of code -- C code, Perl code,

~/.signature: No such file or directory
