No, I'm not. Currently the tool can only handle one file at the time. If 
the user need to process multiple files he/she need to do this manually.

This all seems to require I process multiple files at the same time, or 
rather the whole library? I guess it would make it simpler if the user 
could specify a directory with header files to process. Then the tool 
could assume this is the root directory of the library. I have planned 
to add support for specifying a directory anyway. Although I still would 
like to support the use case of only specifying a single file. But I 
could require that the user specify with a flag the root of the library, 
for those cases.
