digitalmars.D - D editor support

reply Tim Laurent <nanobyte gmx.com> writes:
I noticed that the more D source code you write with a simple editor, 
the more difficult it becomes to jump to methods/functions. I use 
EditPlus and hacked the C# regular expression for function extraction so 
that I can display a list of functions in addition to have syntax 
highlighting, but that is not enough.

What's I'm really looking for is a fully-featured code browser like in 
VC++. Is there any freely available editor that supports something like 
that for D?

Thanks,

Elephant has a codebrowser & jump to function / class / variable ( Alt - G )
, module ( Alt - B ).

Don't forget to set your import paths for added code-completion :).

The latest version of the Zeus for Windows editor comes with class browsing and code completion for the D language: http://www.zeusedit.com/lookmain.html Zeus uses the Exuberant Ctags to generate the tags information and the code changes that where required to support D can be found here: http://www.zeusedit.com/z300/ctags_src.zip

Zeus is shareware but has a 45 day fully functional trial period. Jussi Jumppanen http://www.zeusedit.com
