Here is the description from the photran group of how to build. Now,
this is all done in Eclipse. I can easily enough use cvs directly to
check out all the source and patch them together. But I'm not sure how
I should then go about building the package. Any help appreciated...
We can work something out similar to how we do the other plugins (CDT,
Unlike Photran 2.1 and its predecessor(s), Photran 3.0 is built *on
the CDT. However, there are still a few minor changes that have to be made
to the CDT to get it to support additional languages. We are hoping the CDT
folks will commit those changes to the CDT proper, but until they do, things
are a bit more complicated for us.
Eesh. If the changes to the CDT are blessed by its upstream developers but
not included in a released CDT, we can include them in eclipse-cdt.
Connection type: extssh
Username/passwd: (we gave you this)
Is there no chance of publicly-accessible CVS?
15. Right-click and check out all of the org.eclipse.fdt projects as
as org.eclipse.photran. DO NOT check out org.eclipse.photran.parser.
You only need this project if you will be regenerating the parser
grammar. (The parser is included in the org.eclipse.fdt.core plugin
as a JAR file. This way, the parser does not have to be recompiled
every time you rebuild Photran.)
We'll need to build everything from source.
16. Go to a bash prompt. Change to your Eclipse workspace directory
(the one containing all of the org.eclipse.cdt, org.eclipse.fdt, and
17. Change to the org.eclipse.photran directory.
18. Run ./install
19. Go back into eclipse. Refresh all of the org.eclipse.cdt packages.
(Click the first, shift-click the last, right-click, choose Refresh.)
Man, this is going to be a PITA ...
But we'll work it out :)
