Hello,

Can someone please:

1. Tell me a way to get the indexer's "content assist" to work in all situations at all times with all configurations?

or

2. Tell me how I can systematically determine why "content assist" does not offer assistance for a particular case?

or

3. Tell me some random crap to try that may or may not help my situation.

I believe (1) is impossible so I'm hoping to get some kind of (2) response like "turn on a console option that will cause the indexer explain why things are not found or if they are being squelched, etc". "Content assist" used to be very helpful but it is now not working well.

I'd prefer to not go with option (3).

Thank you!

Chris

PS: My Eclipse 3.8 projects are being created by cmake 2.8.9

A followup for a (3) type strategy...

CDT does a great job of giving me red error messages when I type something naughty. This tells me the indexer is working fine. I'm just not getting content-assist. Content-assist settings attached.

Solved the problem by trying random crap until it worked. This page has a great list of random crap to try:

The specific advice that worked was adding "-clean" to the beginning of my eclipse.ini file.
