Re: [cdt-dev] C API documentation

Yes we do that as part of PTP to add hover help for MPI APIs.
If you are interested, see the code in CVS: tools/   then
under the tools directory, see e.g. org.eclipse.ptp.pldt.mpi.core

Here's the extension point info:
  <extension point="org.eclipse.cdt.ui.CHelpProvider">

I think maybe the CDT does more of that automatically now as well.
These override the default hover help is my understanding.

I just wanted to know if there is support for C API documentation present
in the CDT. I came across a class CHelpProvider which i feel does what we
want to do.
Just wanted to clarify the following

1. Does CDT have support for presenting hover help for C API's similar to
that of JDT.
2. If yes which extension point do we have to extend to implement or
support hover help.
3. Or is there support for directly pointing to a helpbook that we have
created and things should work as it is.
