RE: [cdt-dev] RE: [dsdp-dd-dev] Editor technology subgroup

I think Mikhail is just pointing out that if a view is going to do
anything related to the debugger (like showing disassembly) it will need
a context to operate in just like other debug views. I don't think this
is an obstacle, just something to keep in mind.

I think that the idea was to genearate a read-only file for each debug
session. This file would be created using the object file and found
source files at the beginning of the debug session and it would be
destroyed at the end. The original source file would not actually be

There is at least one problem in Eclipse with having disassembly
embedded in the editor. If you run two debug sessions using the same
source file on different platforms, the disassembly is different for
each platform. So your editor has to react to context changes and insert
the right disassembly.
