Wow, that's a good idea. This brings me to another idea. When you develop in 
C++ and use C++-strings or other template based classes, you  often get 
nearly unreadable compiler error messages when there is an error in a 
function that uses such a class. Since the whole template of for example a 
std::string is expanded and you get very very long typenames in the error 
message such as:

basic_string<char,string_char_traits<char>,__default_alloc_template<true,0> > 

It would be nice if there was an option in Gideon, which abbreviates template 
names by removing everything between < and > like 

basic_string< ... >

Since the messages are highlighted there must be some parsing of these 
messages already. It shouldn't be too hard then to omit all text between <> 

That would make C++ debugging much easier.

Bye, Marcus
