Writing a Plugin

Post by evstevemd » Sat Nov 07, 2015 3:39 pm

Hi,
I want to basically write a plugin to run a compiler and trap all errors and warnings and present interface Listing all of them.
Basically I plan to get the following from CodeLite after the plugin runs CL compiler
1. Message type (error or Warning)
2. Message itself
3. Line Number (exact position will be better)
4. be able to open file on CL and go-to that position/Line

I know there is tutorial for writing CL, so I will follow that. But I want to know if there is API to get the above plus (of course be able to invoke the compile from Plugin will be great if its available)

Thanks
