RE: [cdt-dev] Parsing code under inactive #if or #ifdef

As Mike, Chris and Gerhard mentioned there is no easy solution to that.
As a minimum you need the cooperation of the preprocessor with the
syntax-parsers and also the name-resolution.
I do have some ideas on how we can start working on this, which I plan
to discuss on the cdt-summit in a few weeks. There are chances that we
can come up with an Outline View that handles inactive code in CDT 5.1
next year, but that is not decided, yet.
