probably the best C++ parser...

Fri Jul 1 17:02:09 UTC 2005 can find is gcc, but did you know gccxml 
( ? It's basically the real gcc, but it 
doesn't produce machine instructions, but an xml file describing the source 
So you get 
-all functions
-all variables
-all parameters for functions
-the locations where the functions are declared (file and line number)
etc. in a machine-readable format.

I think this could be really useful for kdevelop (go to 
declaration/definition, completion, parameter info, etc.) Did anybody already 
play with it ?

Btw. it's written by the same guys who develop cmake :-)
