Question vim ctags setup question

Hello All!

I thought ctags is integrated into vim by default. I have my project in the following path: ~/work/my-proj. Inside the project folder I created a .proj-ctags folder and issued the following command to create the tag file:

ctags -a -R -f .proj-ctags/.tags --exclude=@./.proj-ctags/ctags-exclude-list *
In my ~/.vimrc I also added the path to the tags file. When I open a file in ~/work/my-proj and press Ctrl-] by having the cursor on a function name or variable name, I get

E257: cstag - tag not found.
Can some one let me know whats wrong in my setup?

Thanks for your time.



setup, vim
