A plug-in is a software component that adds a specific feature to an existing software. A software component that supports plug-ins makes it more customizable. Plug-ins are used in web browsers to add features such as web browsers, virus scanners etc. Nowadays plug-ins are becoming very popular with editors used for programming. Since programmers have started using editors, plug-ins have also become very popular to provide added functionality. A similar plug-in is already present in Visual C++. This plug-in will imitate the same behaviour and provide similar functionality in GEDIT 3.This paper discusses the development of the proposed plug-in in Python 3 using Exuberant Ctags for Linux based platforms.
