This group contains the following options:
Automatic saving of current buffer before rebuilding its methods.
This option is only relevant for sources which are supported and
parsed by etags (see
etags is an external tool a source-buffer can only be reparsed if the
buffer is saved to disk. So the command
ecb-rebuild-methods-buffer checks for sources which are not
supported by semantic or imenu if either this option is t or if the
major-mode of the source-buffer is contained in this list: In both
cases ECB saves the current source-buffer before it re-runs etags for
reparsing the source. If nil or if the major-mode is not contained
then no automatic saving will be done!
For all source supported by semantic or by imenu this option takes no
Exclude modes from parsing with imenu or etags. Per default, ECB tries
to parse all file-types not supported by semantic with imenu or etags
or some other method (for details see the option
ecb-non-semantic-parsing-function). If a file-type can not be
parsed by semantic, imenu or etags than this simply results in an
empty method-buffer for this file. But nevertheless you will get a
message "Sorry, no support for a file of that extension" which comes
from the speedbar-library and can not switched off. Therefore if a
major-mode is known as not parse-able by semantic, imenu or etags
it can be added to this option and then it will be excluded from being
tried to parsed.
Initially expand all tokens for not by semantic supported sources.
This option can be customized on a major-mode basis, i.e. if a
major-mode is contained in this option then all tokens for this
modes will be initially expanded - otherwise not.
Define mode-dependent parsing functions for non-semantic files. This
is an alist where the car is a major-mode symbol and the cdr is a
function-symbol of a function which should be used for parsing a
non-semantic buffer, i.h. a buffer for which no semantic grammar
exists. Such a function gets one argument - the filename of current
buffer - and has to generate and return a token/tag list which is
understandable by |
speedbar-insert-generic-list. speedbar has
already included two functions
speedbar-fetch-dynamic-etags which can be used for parsing
buffers with imenu rsp. etags.
This option takes only effect if
is not nil: Then ECB checks for non-semantic buffers if current
major-mode is contained in this option and if yes, then the
specified parsing function is called; if not then the cars of the
speedbar-dynamic-tags-function-list are called in
that sequence they are listed in this variable. See option
speedbar-dynamic-tags-function-list for further details.
In most cases imenu-parsing is preferable over etags-parsing because
imenu operates on Emacs-buffers and needs no external tool and
therefore parsing works also if current contents of a buffer are not
saved to disk. But maybe sometimes etags may return better parsing
IMPORTANT: if imenu-parsing should be used then the option
speedbar-use-imenu-flag must be set to not nil!
Display content of non-semantic-files in the ECB-methods-buffer. See
Hook running at beginning of the function
ecb-rebuild-methods-buffer-for-non-semantic. This function is
always called by the command
ecb-rebuild-methods-buffer for not
semantic supported source-types.
Every function of this hook gets one argument: The complete filename
of the current source-buffer in the edit-window. The Method-buffer is
only rebuild by
either the hook contains no function (the default) or if no function
of this hook returns nil! See
for description how these function are processed.
