#9723 closed defect (wontfix)

MSVC builds do not support bison and flex

Reported by: henke37 Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Port: Win32
Version: Keywords: director, flex, bison
Cc: Game:


The projects as generated by create_project do not support the bison and flex files used by some of the engines.

Add the needed smarts to setup the files as dependent files and, if feasible, enable syntax highlightning and code completion.

This is done on purpose. MSVC correctly captures the files autogenerated by flex/bison.

There is a separate makefile target 'director-grammar', which compiles flex/bison, and so far only sev was updating those. Getting updates by someone else will require them to use exactly the same versions of flex and bison, so they do not generate excessive diffs.
