RSART- namespace support

MISRA C++ rule 7-2-1 and our company's coding standards require us to keep everything outside of main from the global namespace. RSART needs to do something other rational products do: allow some namespace sterotype to be optionally applied to pac...

External Editor Code Sync

What we did with RoseRT was generate the RoseRT component, use an external editor (like Visual SlickEdit or UltraEdit) to modify code between //USR blocks as desired, taking advantage of the vastly faster and more powerful editing facilities of th...

Currently if the code is at left margin in code edit view, thats how it appears in generated source. Problem is that should be INDENT spaces in based on being in function braces. Code in nested classes should be N x INDENT spaces in based on level...
