I was wondering if there is a tool that can parse a C header file and give me an AST that would allow me to process it in Ruby. Does anyone know of a relatively easy way to do this? I was thinking that a lot of people probably need to parse API's for one reason or another. My situation is that we have a large application that was originally written in Ada, but now has a C interface. We need to make the API available to Matlab/Simulink, which is a model-based development system (basically it's programming with diagrams). This is done in Matlab via S-functions (system functions). This system is pretty large and writing all the S-functions by hand would be a big job. Seems to me that a tool is the best choice and Ruby seems like the tool to do it.
