i use etags to generate a TAGS file that allows me to navigate through source code of c++ projects that i work on. the default name for the file that contains the tags is TAGS so everytime i had to type make TAGS in order to generate the tags file. i hate typing capital letters therefore i have been trying to change that to lower case for some time now finally i was able to do it today
put the following in your .emacs file
(setq tags-file-name “tags”)
that’s it !!!
