A while back in a private conversation, Jonathan brought up the need
for a flexible C parsing/analysis/transformation framework. My GCC
transformation toolkit was a (quite) rough draft of such a beast, but
I didn't take it anywhere. Upon brief inspection, this clang project
looks like it might fit the bill.
http://llvm.org/devmtg/2008-08/ has a link to a slides & video of a
talk by Steve Naroff:
Clang Internals - Clang is is a new C/ObjC/C++ front-end in
development as part of the LLVM project. This talk describes its
current status, high level architecture, and how its Abstract Syntax
Trees (ASTs) work.
