Re: [cdt-dev] Code Assist Questions

I think that completion contribution as it implemented through extension point is a more or less abstract tool. But interface IFunctionSummary doesn't seem to be very C++-oriented :-)).
I cannot say anything about standard way, just couple of words about our implementation. We have a sort of tool that parses (and all supplementary files) and builds summary file(s) which then code hovering implementation uses. This is an XML file with blocs of this type:
   summary="Write formatted output to stdout"
   synopsis="#include &lt;stdio.h&gt;\nint printf( const char * format, ... );\n"
Feel free to ask more if you need.

Subject: [cdt-dev] Code Assist Questions

Hello all,

I'm still unable to get the current code assist working for me. However, looking at its code I have some questions:
- Does the current code assist propose anything other than functions/function prototypes?
- Would the completion contribution through extension points be able to propose anything other than global functions?
- Would we need completion contribution thorough extension points even if we parse and follow includes?
- Do you know of a standard way of linking documentation to code in C/C++ that could be used by the parser to help in text hover?

Appreciate your help,
