Sorry for the very late reply. You can generate that information/file in a similar way as we are generating the code completion and call tip files for notepad++, using a script similar to following:

Code: Select all

function sysCall_init()
    local st=-1
    if sim.getInt32Parameter(sim.intparam_program_full_version)<4010002 then
        st=0
    end
    local f=sim.getApiFunc(st,'+')
    local v=sim.getApiFunc(st,'-')
    local t={}
    local b={}
    for i=1,#f,1 do
        b[f[i]]=true
        t[#t+1]=f[i]
    end
    for i=1,#v,1 do
        b[v[i]]=false
        t[#t+1]=v[i]
    end
    table.sort(t)
    finalTxt=header1
    for i=1,#t,1 do
        if b[t[i]] then
            -- function
            local s=sim.getApiInfo(st,t[i])
            if s and not string.find(string.lower(s),"deprecated") then
                s=string.gsub(s,"\n","")
                local ep=string.find(s,")")
                if ep then
                    s=string.sub(s,1,ep-1)
                    ep=string.find(s,"%(")
                    if ep then
                        local args=string.sub(s,ep+1)
                        ep=string.find(s,"=")
                        local rets=""
                        if ep then
                            rets=string.sub(s,0,ep-1)
                        end
                        finalTxt=finalTxt..[[        <KeyWord name="]]..t[i]..[[" func="yes">

                        if #rets>0 then
                            rets=rets.." ="
                        end
                        finalTxt=finalTxt..[[            <Overload retVal="]]..rets..[[" >
]]
                        ep=string.find(args,",")
                        while ep do
                            s=string.sub(args,0,ep-1)

                        end
                        finalTxt=finalTxt..[[                <Param name="]]..args..[[" />
