Hi,

I just started to evaluate RTSC and I'd like to a have a closer look, if
it's appropriate for our needs. My first question is: can I use CDT for
developing with RTSC or do I have to use CCStudio? I tried to set up CDT
Ganymede and Europe with the XDC plugins, but couldn't find the support in
the IDE.

thanks,
Clemens

You can use CDT. The easiest way to do this is to simply setup CDT's
"make command" (in a non-managed make project) to be the xdc command
included in the XDCtools. The xdc command is a simple shell that
invokes GNU make 3.81 and, as a result, it supports all of the normal
GNU make command line options. In particular, you can pass goals on the
command line to finely control what is built.

This level of integration is not as complete as that provided by
CCStudio, but I find it sufficient for most purposes.

thanks, now my CDT is set up correctly.
Are there plans to improve CDT support? Especially for editing xs, xdc and
cfg files?

Absolutely. We currently working out the bugs in a graphical editor for
..cfg files that allows you to compose these scripts easily (no need to
write JavaScript) _and_ review the result of running the script.

As for .xs and .xdc files we don't have any development underway. But
it's easy to see the sort of capabilities that should be available:
syntax highlighting, method auto-completion, and links to method
documentation.

Since .xs files are JavaScript, syntax highlighting is easy (there are a
variety of JavaScript aware editors) but some work is necessary to
integrate method completion and summary documentation.

Finally, although .xdc files have no pre-existing editors that
understand their contents, they are somewhat easier than arbitrary
JavaScript files: the IDL is purely declarative, strongly typed, and
it's relatively easy to determine what each identifiers refers to.

The challenge for both .xs and .xdc files is in finding appropriate
editors to start with.
