View Full Version : C++ Project Idea

October 3rd, 2009, 04:06 PM
I have an idea for a gui application:
1) the user can enter the error they are getting &/or the programming language & the program will search a database for the error & display code, reasons for it
2) the user can enter something like "class" & "c++" into the programming bit & it will look for examples.

What I am asking is how to do this, one idea I've had is to use GtkSourceView widget & display the text like that, but I doubt this is the best way to do it.

I would rather see man pages for gtk/glib API.

What you seem to want is something like just a GTK+ frontend to a programming errors database...

You could take several approaches to this... even command-line based, but of course if you want GTK+ you need to look at GTK+'s API docs... :p

What way should I display the data? SourceView? HTML?

Without really wanting to put you off, I have to say that I find that there is already a fairly excellent tool for this kind of thing.

Begins with a G and ends with oogle :S
