Hi,
I am new to eclipse. I am a user of Source Insight, where there is a symbol window, which suggests symbols even as I type partial name. It need not necessarily start with the name I type.

Example: if there is a function with name 'func_some_long_prefix_xyz_abc()', I want to look up function by just typing xyz instead of starting with func_some_... . Is this possible in eclipse?

I found that I can look up symbol by typing the symbol name in Open element. But the problem is I must remember exactly how the function name starts. Maybe this feature already exists in eclipse. Can somebody please point to me if it exists?

Thanks
Sithara

Hi,

This feature was recently added for Eclipse Java https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.6/jdt.php#substring-code-completion someone needs to do the work to adapt the new feature to C/C++ Development.

Contributions welcome, first step is to create an enhancement request https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=CDT

Thanks,
Jonah
