Here's the problem:
Given the source file with this content:
int main(int argc, char * argv)
/* all ok */
I want to convert it into something like this:
( Parameter(Type("int"), Name("argc")
, Parameter(Type(Array(Pointer("char"), Size()), Name("argv")
( Comment("all ok")
This is a description format that has a binary representation that allows for
easy depth-first and breadth-first traversal.
With it one can describe C/C++, make files, pre-processor macros etc. - the
reader supplies the meaning to the "calls" like "module".
With it I hope to be able to describe things like interfaces and be able to
automate the glue that allows it to be called from scripting languages,
and much more.
I haven't even given this format a name, but I can convert the text above to
and from the binary representation.
So that's the challenge - any takers?
