Presenting Source Code Text in the Eclipse CDT

“This article introduces text presentation in the Eclipse C/C++ Development Tooling. Text presentation is an important advantage of the CDT. The clear, multicolored display makes it easy to read and navigate through code. Understanding how this works is crucial, whether you want to understand the CDT code or build a full-featured source editor of your own. Further, the mechanisms that make CDT text presentation possible are also needed for a more important capability: automatic parsing.”
