Re: [cdt-dev] Order in which files are indexed (was: AbstractIndexerTask.parseLinkages)

I agree that it would be nice to start with the file in the editor that has focus, then index other open files, and after that the remaining files.

Does the indexer give priority to files that are already open at the time
the indexer starts?

Bug 415486 [1] suggests it doesn't, and that's also been my experience,
but I find it surprising that we would give priority to files opened while
indexing but not to files that are already open.
