This is also on the sourceforge feature requests system.
This new feature is to store and display external references.
This will allow the program to resolve all its references such as includes and other files in the same class. The program does not hold the full information about external files but only down to the debth required to match to the externals.
The other purpose of this feature is to provide information required to translate library references when converting from and to other languages.
It will hold the following information about the external references
- packages - may contain many packages, each under its own package node.
- classes and interfaces - includes name of class and the extends/implements information and meta information
- variables - name and type of variable but not initialisation.
- methods and constructors - includes name, return type, parameters and meta information but not method body statements.
Comments are not included except meta information and formal (javadoc) type of comments.
The display will show this information under externals tab as a tree similar to the parser tree tab.
