I am recently convert to Eclipse and CDT and liking it very much.
CDT has binary parser to parse binary files (executables, libraries) and
display the results in the "C/C++ Project". The binary parser currently displays
all the details like list of sources, headers used to build the binary.
Do other components of the CDT use this information in any way? If not,
why can't the C/C++ indexer, scanner, etc. can use this? Also, for
standard make projects this can come really handy, as new project can be
created by simply importing already built binaries and then using that to
populate the project resources.
I have created bug 161531 for this enhancement request.
