FW: [cdt-dev] CDT-related activities at EclipseCon

We’ve got a BoF tentatively scheduled for the late slot (9:30-11:00) on Mon. night to talk about Fortran support for Eclipse. We’ve been developing a plug-in called Photran ( that has been based on versions 1.2.0, and 2.1.0 of the CDT that provides support for Fortran editing, repository access, building, and debugging. We anticipate we’ll have to continue to work with our own copies of the CDT for the time being, but are eager to encourage and assist efforts to help the CDT become more language agnostic, so that we don’t need to “borrow” as much code in the long run.


Our ultimate aim is to support a full repertoire of refactorings for Fortran, and once the compilers catch up, support for objects in Fortran 2003. Once again, we’d like to be able to coordinate our work with the CDT effort, as well as others, such as the language toolkit project. Refactoring is a specialty of ours, and we are anxious as well to explore the new architectural directions the JDT folks are taking, and how these might apply to more work-a-day languages like Fortran (as well as C/C++).


Anyone interested in Fortran, high-performance computing tools, refactoring, or making the CDT more general is encouraged to join us…


--BF, who hopes to see some of you there…

Our contribution to the second BOF is more centred around “Embedded Development and Debug” as opposed to a product demo.  I’m not sure if there will be time for a demo but TI will have a booth at the conference that everyone can drop by so that they can have a look.

Hi all,


EclipseCon is coming up quickly, and I just wanted to summarize the CDT-related activities that will be taking place next week:


Tuesday (March 1st)


3:30 PM: Parallel Tools Platform (Greg Watson) - of interest to the debugging folks

8:00 PM: First CDT BOF

        Intel (Leo Treggiari) - Managed Build System

        Altera (Tracy Miranda) - Altera's CDT activities

        IBM (John Camelon) - latest features of CDT parser, DOM viewer demo

        IBM (Doug Schaefer) - Demo of IBM C++/UML visualizer

        QNX (Dave Inglis) - New debugger features



Wednesday (March 2nd)


2:15 PM: Introduction to CDT (Sebastien Marineau)

3:30 PM: Providing a development environment for Linux (Rick Moseley, Redhat)

4:40 PM: Language toolkit technical exchange - should be of interest to most CDT folks

8:00 PM: Second CDT BOF

        HP (Sumit Sarkar) - CDT in the Entreprise

        Rockwell-Collins (Chad Barnes) - Rockwell extensions to CDT

        TI (Chris Recoskie) - Demo of TI's IDE

        Montavista (Pierre-Alexandre Masse) - Status and discussion on remote debug

        WindRiver - Remote debugging discussion



We also discussed setting up meetings/discussion on a couple of specific topics, including debug API discussions, core discussions etc. My suggestion is to target these either for early Wednesday (after the first BOF) or Thursday (after the second BOF).



If anyone has any additions or wants to highlight sessions that could be of interest to CDT folks, feel free to respond to the list.
