Using IAR's compiler for ARM at work, one of my most-used IDE capabilities is:
"Go To Where Defined"
I click on a variable, constant or function name and choose "Go To Where Defined" ... the editor jumps to/displays the file and line where the symbol is defined. Saves a lot of time working with a multi-file project. Really improves productivity.

Does the conflab of VS 2010 with AVR do this? I think it's difficult to implement because the editor has to have the symbol table from the prior compilation.

(sheepishly)
I'll answer my own question... video on Atmel's website says "yes" to the above question. And it'll rename globally. Nice.

Time to give Studio 5 a try.

I am no devote' of microsoft, but after 3 hours or so with Studio 5, it's a big improvement. However, comma, I am stumped on using C++ with 5.1 - all the examples are C, not C++ and my C++ from Studio 4 won't compile. I posted a Q on that just now.

You need to download the C++ extension to get C++ capabilities

Use the extension manager (under tools I believe)

Is this still true in AS6? I assumed the reason it was an "extension" in AS5.0 was simply that it wasn't finished in time. But surely AS6 ships with C++ support out of the box? Doesn't it?

Seems this did get into the beta. Yes, avr-g++ is shipped in AS6.
