[cdt-dev] Language settings Provider for compiler(gcc) built ins


Below is my query :



I want to modify the command for LanguageSettingsProvider for compiler (gcc) built in settings.

e.g. I want to modify the command specified in plugin.xml i.e.  gcc -E -P -v -dD ${INPUTS} to gcc -E -P -v -dD ${INPUTS} –option1 –option2 programmatically based on some options.

I tried using the following code, but its not updating the command in ‘Preprocessor Include Paths, Macros -> 'Providers' tab:


ICProjectDescriptionManager mngr = CoreModel.getDefault().getProjectDescriptionManager();

                                                            if (currentConfig.getOwner().getProject() != null){

                                                                      ICProjectDescription projectDescription =

                                                            mngr.getProjectDescription(currentConfig.getOwner().getProject(), true);


                                                                     List<ILanguageSettingsProvider> providers;

                                                                      ICConfigurationDescription cfgDescription =


                                                                     if (cfgDescription instanceof ILanguageSettingsProvidersKeeper) {

                                                                         providers = new



                                                                         for (ILanguageSettingsProvider provider : providers) {

                                                                             if ((provider instanceof  AbstractBuiltinSpecsDetector)) {

                                                                                    String cmd = ((AbstractBuiltinSpecsDetector) provider).getCommand();

                                                                                    cmd = cmd + Constants.SPACE + option1

                                                                                    (( AbstractBuiltinSpecsDetector) provider).setCommand(cmd);


Can anyone give me inputs regarding how to update the command programmatically?
