helm-gtags-find-tag-from-here command a lot. It works fine as long as there is no change to the source file contains the definition of symbol under the cursor. However, if I modify the source file that contains definition of symbol, the command doesn't work as it always jumps to the old line number that contains definition, which has changed due to the modification.
It seems the tags are automatically-updated or there is some cache of the tags that keep referencing the old definition position. So, I issue
helm-gtags-clear-all-cache but it doesn't work.
Currently, if I modify the file, I have to remove
GTAG and regenerate them so that I can have the tags reflect the latest change. This is huge pain. So, I'm wondering what can go wrong?
