[cdt-dev] Minutes Indexer Call

Hey gang,


We had a quick indexer call yesterday. Unfortunately only Bala and Andrew from Symbian and Dave D from Wind River were able to attend. We’ll have another call in a couple of weeks. Please let me know if you want to attend.


Symbian will be working on off-line indexing. Their focus will be on being able to build index for SDK’s such as Symbian’s OS header files, and something I’d like to use for QNX’s Neutrino headers as well. I’m sure others will find this useful as well as for cygwin and Linux headers. It’ll be interesting to see if we can use it for large projects as well that take into account file changes after the index is built off-line.


There are a number of things to consider, e.g. composite indexes versus importing external indexes, as well as how to build the index offline and share it with others, including file path changes. They will start working on a proposal and will be creating a bug report to share their ideas and receive feedback and discussions.
