I am having all sorts of problems with the source code in Eclipse. I

directories duplicated) and Eclipse is displaying errors on just about
every statement in that file.
Well - that's really Eclipse' problem :-) can you turn off it's bogus
error display ? I guess getting help with Eclipse would be a good thing
to do. Potentially you don't want to create a project - but just use it
to edit the specific files.
I think the first thing I need to do is to find all the include
files and add those directories into the include file path in the
project properties. One of the problems I have is that the statement
"com::sun::star::sheet::DataPilotFieldGroupBy::SECONDS," is producing an
error complaining that symbol SECONDS is not found.
This is from an UNO / generated header. It seems highly unlikely that
Eclipse is going to do a perfect job of building LibreOffice. As such, I
would use it as a syntax-colouring text editor - not in it's all-seeing
monster mode ;-)
How I configure eclipse to consider the idl file to be the same as
the hpp file so that these symbols get resolved?
I have no idea. You need to edit the code with some sort of source code
editor, Elipse is one option. If it can't control it's urges to try to
understand the entire (apparently not built) code-base then I'd
recommend using something else ;-)
I am also having difficulty determining which dp module equates to
the dialog that gets displayed for variables that are dragged to the
pivot table layout areas, to specify the attributes of those variables.
Is there any documentation anywhere that explains what each module
within the suite actually does and how they relate to what is actually
displayed by Libreoffice for each function it performs?
Each module ? each top-level directory has README - patches to improve
them appreciated. Sadly there is no further good structural
documentation at all.
In general - if you want to go from the UI -> the source code, you need
to go via the .src files - which you can grok for user-visible strings,
and then look for the defined names of those in the .hrc files - which
are shared between resources and C++ and hence into the relevant source
code and down to a widget.
Hope that helps :-)
