I am developing an IDE since a few years, and after many trials I
have settled for SQL databases for storing information about
the program.

The information I gather is
o type information
o coordinate information (precise line, file column of definition)
o identifier information
o macros definition

and several other stuff like usage tables, etc.

I wonder if anyone here knows of papers or references about this.

Are there any standards that would allow different IDEs to exchange

I have now developed a bunch of SQL tables where the hierarchical
information is stored using "pointers" , i.e. a record can contain
a reference to the index of another record.

This is better than the ad hoc ascii files I had, but still quite messy.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any info
