Re: [eclipse-dev] where to get started writing a language parser for SWIG

Nope - what you talk about is an DSL and hence you want Xtext.

Hi Manoj, yes looks right.. it doesnt necessarily have to do with java support though, SWIG supports many languages and one could envision using it to generate C or python or whatever.. does that still fall under JDT?

Hi Stephen,

To understand the requirement, checking whether you want to convert the SWIG files into a DOM AST of JDT?

Hypothetically, what is the proper way to create a mode (im not sure of the proper jargon) to parse SWIG interface files <>

for syntax hilighting, type hierarchy, etc.

Is there some some sort of minimal project I can checkout that does this sorta thing?

Thanks in advance
