      It already works a little bit for C++. What is required is the C++
      specific things, such as recognizing ::. I don't really know enough
      about C++ to do this properly, thus hopefully someone picks up the C
      implementation and adds the C++ things. However, I'm still improving
      the C stuff.

      What is a curses-esque window?

      For various GUIs a nice popup window should be used. This can be added
      per GUI. This always takes a lot of time to implement if you are not
      familiar with the GUI libraries, thus it would be best if various people
      do this. I probably have to help with the first one, since display
      updating will be different when not using the popupmenu code.

      Currently this is only for C and similar languages. I'm not sure it
      also works for Java.

      Darren Hiebert apparently didn't have time to add the code yet...

      I used to wonder about the meaning of life. But I looked it
      up in the dictionary under "L" and there it was - the meaning
      of life. It was less than I expected. - Dogbert
