Ext. point for external content/code assist?

    Hello.

    I want to provide content/code assist for an API exposed to an embedded Perl interpreter (but implemented via C/C++, so no .pl files exist for this API).

    Can you tell me if EPIC allows to contribute content/code assist via other Eclipse plug-ins (that way avoiding modifying EPIC to do the desired completion)?

    In DLTK the extension point "org.eclipse.dltk.ui.scriptCompletionProposalComputer" can be used to contribute third party/API content/code assist. Does EPIC offer something similar?

    Thank you in advance for your answer.

    With best regards

    Clemens Anhuth

      EPIC doesn't currently declare any extension points for third parties. You are welcome to modify EPIC and submit a patch that would introduce such an extension point.
