Re: [cdt-dev] Modifiable AST


After our work on refactoring for the Eclipse CDT (CERP). The head of the IFS, Peter Sommerlad, decided to do further development on the CDT. Because an all working refactoring plugin can only be done with a writable AST. So, right now, there are two Students working on a Project for a writable AST. They have just started a few days ago, so they'll announce their work, later on this list.

I think, it would be great to have a writable AST. Further development in many directions (like refactoring, code formatter, etc. ) could be done much easier.

Is there a possibility that the CDT could add some parts or even the complete work to the CDT, if this studentproject is successful?
