Re: Metrowerks IDE question

Rufus V. Smith
I am not in the habit of reawakening message threads from nearly 10
years ago, but this never got resolved, as far as I can see.

I am experiencing the same issues with CodeWarrior IDE V. 5.7.0(We can't move to the new IDE for the legacy code)
and the Find in Files function does have a problem with scanning
header files.  Namely, it isn't scanning them.  But I think sometimes with other projects it does.  (We can't move to the new IDE for the legacy code).

The Scan Source files checkbox is checked.  The Scan Headers box is checked, but grayed out.  It doesn't find the search terms in header files.

Lord, save me from software that "kinda" works.  If it simply didn't work, I use grep and move on with my life.  But this should work and I am destined to lose hours of my life finding out why it isn't.
