Nope, this works as expected... From "ctags --help":
-R Equivalent to --recurse.
Recurse into directories supplied on command line [no].
Well, you didn't supply any directories, you only specified files (*.c and
*.h), so, unless you have any directories ending in .c or .h, the recurse
option is moot. Try "ctags -e -R ." or something (use --exclude option if
you don't want all files).
