I have looked at pretty much any C++ parser out there. That includes
projects like CDT, cppcheck, KDevelop, and OpenC++. I have also looked
at gcc's AST dump (which contrary to popular opinion does exist; it
seems people don't search the web anymore). All of these are not
straightforward to use from Emacs, for various reasons, so I decided to
keep working on Semantic. I do plan to use gcc for helping with
preprocessor work, though.
