Hi,

I'm wondering if there are plans for Objective C support.
I haven't found a good IDE for it, so it would be great
if it would be included.
This might be very interesting for MacOS X developer too.

Thanks

Rico

Hi Rico,

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
it correctly.
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.

Thanks...

This applies to old CDT, closing as part of cleanup.
