Good day,

vlad.dumitrescu> I have a wondering about the TAGS functionality present (or wanted) in erlang.el
vlad.dumitrescu> If more people are interested, I can lend a hand for helping to implement them. They are (in no particular order):
vlad.dumitrescu> 1. lookup/complete tags of the form "module:func"
vlad.dumitrescu> 2. lookup/complete only exported functions from other modules than the one in the active buffer
vlad.dumitrescu> I think that #1 requires only some simple processing of the TAGS file. 

I wrote Erlang BNF gramma for Emacs Semantic package
(http://cedet.sourceforge.net, used in Emacs JDE, ECB and other packages)
some times ago so  most Semantic functionality works well with Erlang:

- menu of module definitions, records and functions;

- navigation between function clauses (next, previous, jump to, search);

- function doc generation.

Many others could be easily added.

I can post it to mail list if somebody is interested in it.

Best Regards,

Vladimir Sekissov
