Requests from Users

  • Copy launch configurations when copying project -
  • Fortran source code formatting -
    • Add "Correct indentation" (adopt from emacs?)
  • Run enhancements (I/O redirection, launching shell scripts) -
  • Photran-specific "convert tabs to spaces" option -
  • Intel language extensions -
  • Spell checking -
  • Support STRUCTURE and RECORD (DEC extensions)
  • Support vertical limiter also for free-form Fortran (e.g., column 132 in gfortran by default)
  • Highlight unused variables (similar to Java)
  • Support content assist for members of derived types
  • Extend "Add ONLY clause to USE statement" refactoring to work with all modules in a source code selection, not just only a single highlighted module. While refactoring module imports, preserve formatting (i.e., case of operators' and imported functions' names)
  • Add a support for some type of a documentation, e.g. generate a commented out list of all local variables so they can be easily annotated.
