The standard CC is still maintained by some people, but it is hard to parse the template or C++11 new feature related code.
It has problems with all sorts of other stuff not related to C++11 (like this issue
). I know it's a huge piece of work, but it has just never functioned properly for me with anything beyond helloworlds, and I'm very sorry about it. Even the plain notepad++ way of suggesting whatever it sees in the document without any language parsing is more helpful. Btw. notepad++ has more features working better, but it's a subject for a different topic.yvesdm3000
More tasks to do: the class&method toolbar, goto declaration/implementation context menus and something that replaces cscope.
If you accept feature suggestions, then I'd prefer to have context dependent syntax highlighting. Current highlighting schemes are plain based on a set of keywords. I'd like the highlighting to be able to differentiate between functions, variables, class names, preprocessor constants etc., which requires support of a syntax parsing plugin.
Another feature is to provide suggestions in a relevance-based order. I.e. when passing arguments to a function, the first suggestion should be a local variable name or an argument of a currently edited function that has the type most compatible with the currently passed argument, and further suggestions should include other castable identifiers in order of how forceful the casting should be.
These two would make it close to the level of VisualAssistX.
