digitalmars.D - DMD FrontEnd

I am using the DMD front end for code completion / navigation, and have
gotten it to compile and can use it to succesfully parse code, and have been
looking through the semantic phases to see how I can create and use a symbol
table of sorts that I can then use to display all classes / functions /
aliases ( etc ... ), and use it to search for code-completion.  I don't have
any compiler experience , and Im struggling with it a bit.

Should I just take each Module and enumerate through their members, in a big
if block and based on each symbols type take a specific action ?  e.g.

/*.. code ..*/

The way to do custom code for each symbol type is the same way semantic() is
done for each symbol. Create a new virtual function for what you want to do,
and override that function for each symbol. Then, loop through the members
of each module, calling that function.


Soon as the parser is done Ill release it in case others want to use it for
code completion and stuff.  ( its in C++ )

Thanks,
Charlie

Have you checked my posts about DLexer and DParse?  I'm in the process of
converting DMD's front end compiler's parsing code over to D.  I'll post the
final modules when I'm satisfied.  This will help with code-completion support
very much!  In fact, that's my goal.

Yep I've kept up with those threads :).  Looks very nice,  unfortunately
this project is in C++ , else I would definetly go with D.  Keep up the good
work !
