[cfe-dev] Getting type information from the C API

I have a few questions about getting type information from the C API.

1. Is it possible to get the name/spelling of a give type, i.e.

int x;

Given the above, doing something like this, "c" is the cursor pointing 
to "x".

CXType type = clang_getCursorType(c);
CXString str = clang_getTypeSpelling(type);

"str" would now contain "int".

2. Get the name of the super class an Objective-C class inherits from 
and the protocols it implements.

3. If a function is inline or not.
