I am looking for a good alternative ide for c++ and for that started to lern first vanilla emacs and now spacemacs. I have configured my .spacemacs now to be able to edit lisp code quite comfortably using company-mode.
The most important feature for me is that the function documentation of the candidates is shown in a help popup automatically as I was used to from "Netbeans" in java.
Today I have started to work on a c++ project using the c-c++ layer and company-clang. I have managed to get it running so that I get code completion of my c++ functions as well as my snippets, though the header completion seems to only finding the old c headers like "string.h" and not "string".
However I don't receive any help popup during completion. Did I do anything wrong or is this simply not supported by the layer? And more importantly is there an alternative layer/plugin available to get that working?
If anybody has a hint for the string header file issue I would also be happy to hear about it.
