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...

Does code sync on multiple unrelated projects in workspace before compiling the single project you told it to build. Turn on view 'Progress View' and you can see the names of the unrelated classes that are being code synced. Suspect that if you ha...
