Description _ viendu 2007-07-06 18:06:38 UTC
I am not sure if this is a new idea, or it's been there already.

1) Provide a method to automatically comment out unused code with some user provided comment

2) Provide a method to change methods/variables to the most restricted access modifier (while running step 1 above 1st).

3) Provide a method to change all methods that can be made "static" into static method.  For example, method A only
depends on method B, and both are not static.  However, because B can be changed to be static, so A can also be changed
into static.

Item 1 should work on 1 file or selected files/projects
Item 2 should work on a single method, single class, selected files or project
Item 3 should work on selected method (which could cascade out to others), selected files (which could also cascade out)
or project.

Vi, I would probably set each of these up as separate RFEs. Each one looks like it could get complicated. For instance,
the static method thing or #3...would have to make sure nothing inside used instance fields, methods, or classes etc.
Just an FYI to help split it up a bit for who ever might end up working on them. Maybe you can keep this as an overall
issue or something to track your refactoring ideas and break them down.
