[cdt-dev] Using the CDT Parser as a stand-alone module

Hi all,

I am on the development team of the open source project Frysk( which is well into the process of designing/writing a new monitor/debugger to take advantage of the latest hardware/software technologies. At the current time I am working on the UI part of Frysk(there is also a command-line side), specifically the source window view.

At the beginning of the Frysk project a couple of years ago we imported an older version, 2.0, of the CDT parser which we use to markup/highlight the keywords/macros/variables/etc. in our source window view. While this parser has been fairly reliable, we have found a few problems and we would like to upgrade it to a newer model. I understand that the latest CDT Parser is available to be used as a stand alone module and am very interested in importing it and having Frysk use it as its parsing engine.

I have read the documentation Mike Kucera posted to this list at the end of June and it has a lot of good information. I was wondering if there was some information somewhere or if someone could give me some guidance about pulling the CDT Parser out of the CDT source proper and creating a stand alone module. If there is other info around like how to use it, that would be helpful too. As I said previously, at the current time we only use it for highlighting keywords/macros/variables/etc.

BTW, future plans for Frysk are to integrate it into the Eclipse CDT framework so it can be used as gdb is right now. The main focus of Frysk for its initial release is for debugging C++ code and handling multi-threaded apps more gracefully.

Thanks in advance for any help you can render here.
