: What is it you may ask?
It's an editor for C programs or extensions. It automates the structuring of a program.
I found that with many projects I would get lost as the project grew. I would start moving some code into other files, and then as those files grew, I would again have to restructure the project. I also found it annoying having long function comment prologues with code. I wanted something that reduced the amount of time I spent searching for data in flat text files.
Fed Builder is a simple solution to these problems. Each project is stored as a serialized array (list) from array get
in a file having a .csrcdb extension usually. A .c file is generated from the .csrcdb contents, and a project_proto.h file is created as well, so that users don't have to duplicate or copy+paste function prototypes.
To see a typical project look here: http://megapkg.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/csrc/megaimage/
To create an initial database use touch myproject.csrcdb.NEWS
I've released version 25. It has bug fixes for empty databases, and empty plan files. I plan to eventually add a C parser, so that I can add some more automation and bug detection. Don't forget to see the README
for usage instructions.http://www.xmission.com/~georgeps/implementation/software/Fed_Builder/Fed_Builder-25.tar.bz2

is a similar project designed for structuring Tcl programs.
