First of all, thank you for all the work on LLVM. I’ve been playing with libclang for a while and it’s been an enjoyable experience.
I’m using libclang to build cross-references for a C++ codebase. I use the
clang_indexTranslationUnit API, which works very well, but unfortunately
reports declarations and references that are coming from macro expansions.
Now, declarations and references from macro expansions don’t really have locations in source code, so I’d love to ignore them.
My questions are:
Is there a way to detect declarations and references from macro expansions?
If not, shall I switch to
Alternatively, would it be a good idea for me to try contributing a new
CXIndexOpt_IgnoreMacroExpansionsoption to the API?
P.S. I tried writing to email@example.com, but was advised to write here instead. Please let me know if this is not the best list for this type of question.
