c++ - DMC++ add-in for Visual Studio

I have been working on an add-in for VS 2005 that integrates DMC++ into the
IDE, allowing VC++ projects to be automatically translated, compiled and
linked using the Digital Mars tools.

Is this of any interest to people on here? I am weighing up how much more
effort I put into it to support some missing VC features, allow targeting of
more than just Win32, writing some proper docs, etc...

.. or have I re-invented a wheel? I couldn't find any VS add-ins for DMC
available...

I think it's one of those things that is build it and see what happens. I suggest first writing it to suit your needs, then make it available.

I updated Scooter's Eclipse plugin to work with ver 3.1.1, but there were no takers on that. I think most DMC++ users are happy with the supplied IDE. I did the Eclipse plugin to avoid needing to purchase any MS licenses so that may also be an issue for others as well.

Where could I find the Eclipse plugin? Thanks, Arjan

Right now it is just sitting on my PC.  I can email it to you.
Maybe Walter would put a copy on the DM site?  Walter, what say ye?

Remember it is really old.  I am trying to find time to update it
for CDT 5.0, which would be sweet!
