Gtags is a speed-up of TAGS/etags for large source bases. In
particular, the TAGS file is loaded into memory by a server, which then provides
a narrowed view of the TAGS file to a client, resulting in a certain amount of
speed-up due to having a much narrowed view.
Gtags has 3 components, the indexing component (which depends on the etags
program distributed by EMACS), the server (which loads the index into memory),
and the client (which talks to the server via IP).
Gtags is distributed under the terms of the
Apache Software Foundation License.
