STL library find helper?
« on: June 05, 2007, 04:18:52 pm »
Hi,

I'm a newbie in terms of c++ programming and codeblocks. The problem is, I often do not know that a function, which I am searching for, already exists in library XYZ.

Does CodeBlocks support the user in any way? I think what I need is a kind of full text search through, hmmm, library function descriptions?

I hope you understand what I mean.

Thx...

Grab yourself an helpfile and use the help plugin (e.g. see here).
Codecompletion may also be your friend.

You might want to make yourself familiar with the SymTab plugin, too (part of the contrib plugins). It's purpose is to use the "nm" tool to query object files / libraries for exports of certain functions.
With regards, Morten.

I use old-fashioned way - grep.exe.

I like the new way, I just found AstroGrep today at http://sourceforge.net/projects/astrogrep/

It works only on windows right now, it is trying to use mono under Linux. It is written in C#.

Thanks people- I'm sorting out if the cpp reference help + help plugin may be enough for me.
