Matthew Weir O'Phinney's Blog:
exuberant ctags with PHP in Vim
February 01, 2007 @ 07:17:46

In a new post, Matthew Weir O'Phinney sharing a handy new tool that he discovered - exuberant ctags - that lets you magically click on a class of function name and move to its declaration.

I found exuberant ctags, a library which can be used to generate an index file mapping language objects to source files and the line in the source file where they are declared. Contrary to its name, it's not just for the C language; it currently supports 33 different programming languages, including PHP.

He also includes a usage example in the post, specifically for getting the tool up and working in your Vim installation (via a bash script). Then it's just a matter of issuing a :set command to point at the correct file and you're one keystroke away from the function/class declaration of your choice.
