Ada definitions producing too many results in Slickedit 11.0.2
« on: February 15, 2007, 07:17:23 pm »
I have 4 Ada packages called package1.ada, package2.ada, package3.ada, and package4.ada. Each package has a procedure called Free. SlickEdit 11 has all of these packages tagged. In my main.ada, I have a call to package2.Free. If I right click on package2.Free and ask for the definition of Free, it gives me a list with package1.Free, package2.Free, package3.Free, and package4.Free. In version 9 (I think), it would actually figure out which Free I wanted to see the definition of by looking at the package name. This feature needs to come back.

To clarify, I mean the actual source files.

Thanks for the sample code.  Having good example code to reproduce a problem with makes a world of a difference.  This issue will be fixed in 12.0.  Unfortunately, the changes are too significant to put into a hot fix for 11.0.2.

Thanks Dennis. Bummer that it can't be made into a hotfix. The wheels move pretty slow over here at Boeing in terms of getting new versions of software out to us. We are greatful that you were able to find a fix though...this bug shows up quite a bit in our 6000-file Ada source tree.

BTW, does SE 12.0 == SE 2007 ? If the fix makes it into one of the beta's, please let me know.
