I’m emailing this list in the hopes that someone might be able to help me. I am currently using libclang to do some very basic reflection of C++. I am creating a translation unit for a header and then visiting all the tree elements using the cursors, in some cases I fall back onto the qualtypes to get the necessary information out. The problem that I’m having right now is that the cursor type libclang return for std::vector (and other std types like std::map ) is incorrect. It looks like libclang can’t identify the type and falls back onto default int as I am getting a type spelling of “int” for fields of type std::vector.
Given the example header file below:
I parse it using clang_parseTranslationUnit2 with the following inputs:
Args: “-x”, “c++”, “-std=c++11”
Options: CXTranslationUnit_DetailedPreprocessingRecord | CXTranslationUnit_SkipFunctionBodies | CXTranslationUnit_Incomplete;
Now when visiting the fields for struct B I get:
CXType_Int for the cursor to m_vector instead of CXtype_Unexposed which is what I would expect.
but for the std::string member m_string, I get CXType_Unexposed which allows me to visit the field and extract the necessary info. When visiting the field for the string I correctly get the “namespace” then “typeref” cursor types.
I am completely out of ideas as to what is going on, why does lib clang fail to understand the std::vector type? I’m pretty sure I must be doing something horribly wrong.
I got latest on the libclang version from github on June 1st, 2015, built for windows x64 using MSVC 2013 toolchain.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance,
