your report is just great!!! THANK YOU! I will try to reply you as best I can.

BTW Actually I don't care if you want to replace r++ with gccxml. I mean, I 
*don't have* to convince you or the other developers that r++ is the best 
alternative for KDevelop. Actually you can go forward and replace the whole 
programming language framework. I did it 3-4 years ago when we switched from 
KDevelop 2.x to gideon(3.x), so I don't mind if someone else will replace my 
code. The point is I need features like code refactoring and incremental 
parsing in my IDE. So I'm going to implement the support for such features. 
That's why I wrote the KDevelop parser generator, the c++ parser, and 
KDevProjectManager(the programming language framework needs a better project 

About the code completion. The problem is not the parser. We already have all 
the informations we need. The real problem is the Catalog/CodeModel(== the 
symbol table). We don't store things like templates, operators, casts, and so 
on.. I'm sorry Vladimir, but I don't think you'll have code completion and 
code browsing for free with gccxml. 

As I said before I don't care if you want to change the KDevelop framework. 
Thanks God I'm the author/coauthor of all the tecnologies I need. CodeModel, 
Catalog, class browser, class navigation(quickopen), C++ parser, Project 
manager, KDevelop interfaces, and more... So I think I can continue to work 
on my favorite IDE without any problems, but if this is a problem for you or 
other developers.. well I'll create my own IDE.
