The new Tcl parser¶
|Maintainer:||Masatake YAMATO <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
Tcl parser is rewritten as a token oriented parser to support namespace. It was line oriented parser. Some incompatibility between Exuberant Ctags is introduced in the rewriting.
The line oriented parser captures class, public|protected|private method. They are definitions in ITcl and TclOO. The new token oriented Tcl parser ignores them. Instead ITcl and TclOO subparser running on Tcl base parser capture them.
