This project is about to create a tool to help developing Mercury programs using eclipse.

The Purpose (Mission)

  • build
  • edit
  • refactor
Mercury codes preferably with other JVM languages.

These are the targets we want to meet

  • Build projects containing .m Mercury files using the command line Mercury compiler
    • use option present in Mercury preference page;
    • or on project Mercury preference page
  • Syntax highlight

  • Proposals based on scope
  • Refactoring within
    • Mercury sources
    • Mercury and other JVM language sources supported by eclipse

This is how our organisation will gain.

  • Work on this when we have spare time, or need to work on this, unless we get a sponsor for faster development.


Multiple platform support:
