I tried to build the released version on Windows a while back.  Although it
compiled OK it did not give the same executable as the released binary and
it also seemed less reliable.   Is a theoretical set of build instructions
available for this platform ?   Can we use the latest version of the windows
hosted TCL/TK from the scriptics site (,  or must we compile the one
that comes with SN?  What actually are the problems with compiling under
Windows,  is it just a broken build or are there fundamental issues that
must be addressed ?

Hello !

First, I would like to thank all the developpers at Redhat for having 
brought us Source Nav. It's such a wonderful tool !! I use it constantly at 

IMHO, the only weak part of this program is the editor, which could be 
greatly improved. The best thing for me would be to have Nedit integrated in 
Source Nav. Nedit is a very powerful, yet very user friendly editor, and I 
think its interface would fit nicely with Source Nav (they have lots of 
similarities, besides using the same X libraries).

My other (less important) wish would be a name completion facility while 
programming, similar to Visual C++ facility: while programming, the editor 
would be able, by pressing a combination of keys, to give a list of symbols 
that completes what you are typing. If it's a class or a struct, and you 
type a "." or "->", a menu appears with the list of the fields and methods 
of the class you can choose from.

One other wish concerns the integration of a config. management program. It 
would be nice to be able to insert a command line for check in/check 
out,etc, if one doesn't use the programs listed (CVS, SCCS, Clearcase). We 
actually developped an upper layer over Clearcase here, with specific 

Lastly, I report a small bug in the Symbol browser that you have probably 
seen already : the fields bar on top of the list is not correctly refreshed 
at first. One has to move one of the column limits to refresh it.

Many thanks again for what you've done so far, and keep up the good job !
