The CDT does not have Objective-C Support in plan. Extending the CDT to
properly handle Objective-C would be an interesting piece of work, and an
ideal candidate for some open source developer.
I must confess I don't know much about Objective-C, but from a quick survey
of the documentation it looks like the work would include the following:
1. Build Support - Should work already since we allow the user to specify
the command line used to build.
2. Automake/Autoconf Support - Our autoconf generation would need to be
extended to recognize\support Objective-C source (.m files in particular),
and generating the proper build invocations.
3. Debugging Support - While I believe gdb supports Objective-C,
investigation would need to happen to determine if our gdb wrapper handles
4. Parsing/Browsing Support - The C/C++ parser would need to be extended to
recognize the Objective-C extensions.
I've opened a "feature" in our bugzilla (11094) that captures this request.
This doesn't imply that we'll do it, but that we would encourage others to
look at this.
