Ive decided id like to work on an IDE for tigcc but im not sure of any restrictions i need to adhere too. It will be written in c++ and will use the tigcc compiler/libraries etc.. Im not sure if im allowed to do this or not. I dont really plan to distribute it its more for personal use although i wouldnt be against the idea either. It seems that calc development has pretty much stopped (even took a look at the gcc4ti fork but it hasnt been updated in 3 years).
I already have a very basic version that ive been toying with for a while now. Its a visual studio look a like (would say clone but comes nowhere close to the features of VS) that has some of the same functionality. Heres a list of what ive worked on so far.
Multiple project solutions (100% complete and functional)
Editors 80% complete. Syntax highlighting ias complete but some advanced features like coloring based on scope (local v. global) and others need work. Code completion is very basic atm as im switching to a regex based search method and so far it gets quite a few things wrong but does display infotips etc..
Project types 100% complete. It has its own project type but can also load tpr projects (with or without converting them)
I plan on other features such as opening the emulator within the ide as well as the help (probably have to decompile it for this which im not sure if im allowed to do) that is what the I in ide is for is it not?
I cannot do a linux version as im not well versed there so this will be a straight forward win32 (not managed c# or anything else) c++ version.
I would like to think that calc dev is still alive as ive had a lot of fun with it over many years. If someone knows of any restrictions i need to adhere too please let me know (point to it) thanks.
