How to specify a *.inl file is the same as a *.cpp file

Post by Tyler » Thu Mar 15, 2012 9:17 am

Hello,

I have a templated class where the header is separate from the implementation (per course requirements). The implementation extension is .inl

I've gotten CodeLite to highlight the syntax correctly as if it's a c++ file (settings->syntax->c++->default->File Extensions->;*.inl). How can I get everything else within CodeLite to treat the file as a c++ file?

Thanks,
Tyler

Thanks for the reply, but I've already done that. (read the second part of my post).

I'm trying to get code completion and other features to work. Any ideas?

Oups, sorry

You can goto settings > Tags settings > CTags > advanced and add the .inl extension to the list

Great! That's what I wanted (it worked).

Thanks for your help.
