Re: [cdt-dev] Ada in CDT

The main work item I did was to hook up the CEditor to ada files. I then had to convince it not to run the CModelBuilder on it. I also had to teach

Just thinking out loud here, on behalf of no one but myself...

If you really take advantage of JFace Text, editors are extremely language-specific -- auto indent strategy, content assist, hyperlinking, double click strategy, and of course syntax highlighting. It's also relatively easy to write one (I made a simple but fairly comprehensive one with everything but content assist in about 12 hours). With that in mind, if one were to build an editor and corresponding outline view independent of the CDT (yeah, that would ignore the model and indexer completely), what else would be necessary to give the illusion of CDT integration? (Tool chains, obviously... and?)
