Hello, everyone here. I have download autopro.vim and put it into the diretory: ~/.vim/plugin/. I run the command:

$ cd tmp
$ ctags -R --c-kinds=+p /usr/include/ /usr/local/include/ && mv tags ~/.vim/tags/systag

then I add the line into my .vimrc file:

set tags+=~/.vim/tags/systag/tags

when I type "strcmp(" in my c source file, I can see the display flash one moment, but it do not show a dialog to display parameter list. If you know how to solve it, please contact me. Thank you very much. --September 12, 2015

That is an old plugin and I don't think you will get an answer here. See Vim Tips Wiki:Community Portal#Asking questions and send a message to the vim_use group (note what it says about needing to wait for the first message to be moderated). When you post, make sure you include the version and patch number of your Vim (use ":ver"). Your commands look ok but the first rule of troubleshooting is to do exactly what the documentation says and see if it works. Also try the simple (project) command. We don't do email at this wiki.
