|Good if student knows||Netbeans|
|Difficulty||Medium/Hard (C?/Java skills required)|
|Benefits to the student||Learn internals of Netbeans and Tcl|
|Benefits to Tcl||Make Tcl running as a plugin for debugging available in netbeans|
|Mentor||Arnulf Wiedemann? + ???|
Tcl is available as a plugin for Eclipse, it would be helpfull to also have the same functions within netbeans.
The student would research how to write a plugin for netbeans and how to use available features like execution trace to drive debugging for Tcl within netbeans.
Arnulf Wiedemann: I don't know much about building a plugin for netbeans, but I am willing to guide/help as much as possible, because I am very much interested in the result. I have a rough understanding on how execution traces work in Tcl, but there are also some other people who know more then me in that area, which - I am sure - will also help if necessary.
RLH - This would be awesome really. I am having to use eclipse with a Python project and blech.
