Re: [cdt-dev] Usage of discovered scanner configuration

Hi Taylor,

I have not been able to find good documentation on the CDT discovered
scanner configuration feature (please let me know if there is some) so
I have been trying to figure it out on my own.

With the "Scanner Configuration Builder" enabled I do a full build.
Once complete I go the the projects C/C++ include paths and click "Add
Contributed..." -> "Discovered scanner configuration container". I see
all the preprocesser symbols and include paths that I would expect so
I click Next. At this point am I really expected to individually
select the check box for every entry? For a big project like mine this
takes forever. A select all/none option seems obvious. The fact that
it is missing makes me feel like I'm just not understanding something.
You are not alone. Scanner Discovery in CDT has multiple problems including being confusing, difficult to use, and lack of documentation. I am working on redesign, please see http://wiki.eclipse.org/CDT/ScannerDiscovery61 and bug 290631 (see the status on Whiteboard in Bugzilla).
