C++ allows the usage of templates to build functions with generic types. This offers the advantage to define a function for many different data types without duplicating code and also supports compile time polymorphism and is thus used often. Template arguments are often automatically deduced from the function call site. Function templates can be hard to work with because the compiler instantiates templates during the compilation process which results in code that the developer cannot see. Programmers using Eclipse CDT do not have easy access to the instantiated templates and thus to information about the deduced template arguments and selected function overloads. Programmers want to know what overload the compiler finally chooses, especially in the case of nested template instantiations. The goal of our term project is to build a plug-in for Eclipse CDT that helps the programmer see the called functions and deduced template arguments. The outcome is a view that helps the programmer to examine function templates, nested function calls and show the deduced template arguments. It offers interactivity to resolve recursively nested functions to an arbitrary nesting level.
