Code Completion. Can I be in on it?
« on: September 24, 2008, 05:23:43 pm »
Hello

Just want to hear if I can be on the team that does the code completion? I dont have any experince working on a public project, but I feel that I have the abilities to do it. Therefore I want to help develop the Code Completion.

Where to start?

You can start by providing patches that fix/enhance things.

Yes I know that. I have not ever tried to be in a public project, so I just dont know how to start. How and where to get the source code and so.

You might also want to check out my patch, not to redo what has already been done, even though I received no feedback on it.

Ah okay. Get the code from  SVN at first to check it out.
Good enough with the patch. Just cant see why the codecompletion works on my XP computer, for the standard libraries, but not for my Linux box. Im wondering why.

This is very strange.
I just installed CB from source on my Ubuntu box. Compiled it and so. It still didnt gave me any codecompletion on the standard and STL libraries. I went totally out of control, hitting and opening all of the Settings -> sub menues. I ran into the Settings->Compiler and debugger menu, and started a flamewar against Search directories (Compiler and resource compiler), typing in /usr/include/c++/4.2.3. It didnt help either. I closed the IDE, and reopened it again, reopened my test project, and then, finally, like lightning from a blue sky, I finally had codecompletion on the SL and STL. YES!!!

Till this minute I still dont know if it was this that did the job because I have been trying so many things in the gap between the reopening of the project and placing of the search directories.

I finally figured it out. I just added a new search directory to Settings->compiler and debugger->search directories->Compiler  pointing to my "/usr/include/c++/4.2.3". This helped me.
