Re: [cdt-dev] A minimal implementation of a language in Eclipse

Yes, Jeff Overbey and Spiros Zanthos gave a tutorial at EclipseCon 2006 (a
year ago!) on building an IDE for the "eightbol" language
by modifying CDT.
Since then, the contributions of them and others have generalized CDT to
make it work for an additional
language without modification of the base CDT.  Thus Photran (for the
Fortran language) became based on CDT without modification, just extension.

Another article you might find interesting is the Eightbol project here:

To quote:
create an IDE
for a new language by extending the Eclipse CDT.  The Eightbol IDE can be
recreated from scratch in about an hour, complete with Outline view,
support, CVS support, and other advanced features.
