Perhaps .. but .. recent post to Felix language list:

"The excellent Cil frontc C parser, described here:

has been built into Felix as an initial step
in Felix being able to process C library header
files *directly* without binding specifications
or use of an external tool like SWIG."

OK, so Ocaml community doesn't know other's work
so well but here is some more information:

It took 4 hours ONLY to complete the repackaging
and Cil's frontc parsed the (huge and arcane)
gtk+2.0 header without an error, pretty printing
the parse tree in a neat format.

Now try doing that with "Java/Perl/Python/C#" not
to mention C++ or ... oh no .. C .. (OUCH!)
