I installed ECB a week ago and just want to say thank you to all
developers. I am really impressed and ECB is a big help in my daily
work. Everything works so seemingly together and ECB is well
documented, which makes it easy to install and use.
The installation is so easy even for a newbie like me, who don't
know much about Emacs Lisp. However, there is one step in the
installation, which is not properly explained. All steps of the
installation documentation for GNU Emacs
(http://ecb.sourceforge.net/ ->Installation -> Gnu Emacs Installation)
explain exactly which emacs commands have to be used to install ECB,
except step 3:
"Add the new ECB-directory to your |load-path| variable.
You *MUST* add the ECB-install-directory to the |load-path| either by
changing the |load-path| variable directly in your |.emacs| or
|site-lisp/site-start.el| or by working with a file |subdirs.el|^2
*ATTENTION*: ECB is NOT properly installed if it's directory is not
added to |load-path| and for example just loaded by
Do not do this!"
It would be very helpful, if this step explains exactly how to set the
BTW, if I have loaded a C++ file in the edit-buffer, is it possible to
jump to the declaration
of a method the cursor is on?
Example: there is MyString.h, which declares a class MyString with a
I have not loaded MyString.h, but I have the file MyTest.cpp in the edit
buffer, which uses
the following code:
If the cursor is on the word compare above, is it possible to jump to
the declaration of
the method compare in the file MyString.h?
Thanks for a great software,
