script type
This script uses exuberant ctags to build the list of tags for the current file.  CursorHold event is then used to update titlestring.

Upon sourcing an autocommand is created with event type CursorHold.  It updates the title string using the function GetTagName.  Another autocommand of type BufEnter is created to generate tags for *.c, *.cpp and *.h files.

Function GenerateTags builds an array of tag names.

Function GetTagName takes line number argument and returns the tag name.

    let g:ctags_path='/path/to/ctags'
    let g:ctags_args='-I __declspec+'        (or whatever other additional arguments you want to pass to ctags)
