Context Tagging

Context Tagging creates a database for all the symbols in your code. This allows SlickEdit to rapidly jump from a symbol to its definition or show a list of references. Other features, such as completions, also use this information. To properly work with your code, SlickEdit will need to tag the libraries associated with the compiler you are using. Click Tag Compiler Librariesss to begin that process.

Context Tagging features work with your source code, not just standard APIs (application program interfaces).

If you choose to skip this step, SlickEdit will automatically tag your compiler libraries if you are using Microsoft Visual Studio, GNU C/C++, or Java. For other compilers, you can tag them later by selecting Tools → Tag Filess and then clicking the Auto Tag button.
