Sorry for the latency, I was busy these last days.

Perfect, it works well :)
But I need to update the tag list manually to generate correct
documentation and insert it a the right place, but even if it can be
found in the online API doc and in tm_source_file.[ch],
tm_source_file_buffer_update() seems not usable from plugins (gets me
an undefined symbol error). Is it normal? If yes, is there another way
to update tag list dynamically?

Thanks again, it's exactly what I was searching for.
But again, a question: how can I know the click position that popuped
the menu (and perhaps if it was popuped by a click and not a keyboard
shortcut) to be able to generate the doc for the function below
pointer and not at current position in the buffer?

Thanks a lot for support!
