dots in the names.

        + modify character class assumed for tags, to check for graphic
          characters.  Previously that used qident (cf: 9.7g), which did not
          allow for dots in filenames which could be present in a ctags file if
          it were generated using "ctags --extra=+f *" (Savannah #51774).

The actual change is small:

REV:1.150               tags.c              2017/08/20 23:08:32       tom
tags:            v9_8s6

allow tags (read from a tags file) to be any graphic character. It turns out
   that Hiebert's ctags can point to filenames vs identifiers.

indeed... with this patch it is working perfectly. really thanks a lot! regarding your changelog comment: in fact it (the appearance of `.' or whatever in the tagnames) can also occur more generally -- as in my case -- if one uses ctags `--regex' for handling of some language unknown to ctagss - such as `R'...

I've been working on lynx for the past few weeks,
thinking to get vile up to date after that's done.

that would be great. as far as I am concerned `vile' remains by far the most likeable `vi' look-alike around. --

FYI, I've just noted that at the end of the `make' run the output reads

make[1]: `libvlflt.a' is up to date.
mv vile ovile
mv: rename vile to ovile: No such file or directory
make: [vile] Error 1 (ignored)

it seems the Makefile tries to mv a previously build binary to the side, but after a preceding `make clean' it simply isn't there? this sure is innocuous but should the warning not better be silenced (or tested for existence of `vile' before trying to mv it)?

thanks again,
