I'm trying to write a vim function to update
cscope databases. I'm trying to save the vim variable
projectRoot in environment variable then expand this enviroment variable in the
find command. But it is not working. Here is my try:
let projectRoot="/mnt/hgfs/projects/myProject/" function! UpdateTagDB() :cd / :execute("let ProRoot=".g:projectRoot) :find $ProRoot -name '*.c' -o -name '*.h' > $ProRoot/cscope.files<cr> :execute("cd ".g:projectRoot) :!ctags -R .<cr> :!cscope -bR<cr> endfunction nnoremap <F5> :call UpdateTagDB()
F5, it gives me:
line 2: E15: Invalid expression: /mnt/hgfs/projects/myProject/ line 3: E345: Can't find file "$ProRoot -name '*.c' -o -name '*.h' > $ProRoot/cscope.files<cr>" in path
What is missing and how to get it to work?
