Navigating Source with VIM+Ctags

Hi there,

In Vim 7.1, Ctrl-T is bound to open a new tab, but several sources say that it should allow me to return from a ctag definition lookup. To restate, I have seen that after Ctrl-], Ctrl-T returns to the original place in code. Is there another binding for this these days?

<Ctrl> + <T> is still bound to jump back to an older entry in the tag stack.
Seems to me that your vim is misbehaving when you're using ctags. I'm using VIM v7.1.314 and <CTR> + <T> is working as expected.
But to give you an answer to your real question: run vim and simply type :help or visit the online documention I'm not joking, the answer is right there. :-)
