RE: [cdt-dev] Mapping a name to include statement

A short note on the problem you defined:
- a reference in a source-file may be declared multiple times, so there
  no mapping from references to a declaration, however each reference
  a list of declarations.
- a header file indirectly included can be included via different paths
  the graph of inclusions. So you cannot map a declaration to a single
  statement, however each declaration can be associated with a list of

For this sort of analysis you could purly rely on the index, you can
follow the 
include-hierarchy and you can find all declarations for a reference.
Here is 
what you need:
* IIndex.findIncludes(IIndexFile)
* IIndex.findBinding(IName)
* IIndex.findNames(IBinding)
* IIndexName.getFile()
