Leaning CodeLite

Post by lgrayjr » Sun Dec 27, 2020 5:51 am

I've just installed codelite, i seem to have everything running. I am looking for help with some of the features. For instance, as I am typing code, I get red arrows on the left side suggesting a code issue and that a fix is available. (I am just learning C with C++ to follow so this will happen often.) I can't seem to find out how to use that feature to get either a fix suggestion or whatever it is supposed to do.

I guess my question is if there is something better than the Wiki documentation that will tell me about features and plugins and how to use them?

Hi,
I get red arrows on the left side suggesting a code issue and that a fix is available.
IIUC, they are a 'feature' of the Language Server plugin when using a Workspace that's not a 'File System' workspace. AFAIK they don't provide any suggestions for fixes; and anyway, for me, they were all false alarms.

I got rid of them by turning off that plugin: Plugins > Manage plugins, and untick its box.

Not really, though searching this forum is a good idea.

Regards,

David

Thanks very much! I kind of thought I'd be learning much more than just the language. I'm used to VS2019, but not for c or c++. So far, I'm liking CodeLite over CodeBlocks (which has a lot more issues).
