This plugin enables you to automatically import warnings from other tools such as external compilers, lint tools or other analysis tools. Warning icons will show up in the source code, making it easy to fix them.
It can be useful to import warnings from other tools.
For example, if you have a third party code checker that does not directly integrate with Eclipse.
This feature is called the Marker Builder.
The Marker Builder reads one specific file, named
markers.rpt, in the root directory of your project.
In this file, each line contains tab-separated values, in either of the following formats:
filename linenumber "warning message"
filename linenumber startchar endchar "warning message"
Right-click on your project; Configure > Enable Marker Builder
We have created an example project that demonstrates the use of the Marker Builder. You can download this project from GitHub.
