I found out the reason why my STL header files were not parsed, although they were included in the system include path (of the ede-cpp-root-project). When I opened these files, Emacs did not know it had to open them in C++ mode. I assume that because of that, semantic did not know how to parse the header files. I modified my auto-mode-alist to also include the STL header files. Now they are recognized by Emacs and by semantic :)

Unfortunately, the Visual Studio 2005 STL version wraps the "namespace std {" statement in a define _STD_BEGIN and "}" in _STD_END. This cannot be parsed by semantic, not even with the right entries in the spp table. This means that a variable of type "std::vector" is not completed, but a variable of type "vector" is. Probably I am doing something wrong here, as semantic parses the gcc STL version correctly, but gcc also wraps the "namespace std {" and "}" commands. I will have to have a look into that.

Thank you, very good to know!

Kind regards,
