NAME ^

h2ph - convert .h C header files to .ph Perl header files

SYNOPSIS ^

h2ph [headerfiles]

DESCRIPTION ^

h2ph converts any C header files specified to the corresponding Perl header file format. It is most easily run while in /usr/include:

        cd /usr/include; h2ph * sys/*

The output files are placed in the hierarchy rooted at Perl's architecture dependent library directory. You can specify a different hierarchy with a -d switch.

If run with no arguments, filters standard input to standard output.

ENVIRONMENT ^

No environment variables are used.

FILES ^

 /usr/include/*.h
 /usr/include/sys/*.h

etc.

AUTHOR ^

Larry Wall

SEE ALSO ^

perl(1)

DIAGNOSTICS ^

The usual warnings if it can't read or write the files involved.

BUGS ^

Doesn't construct the %sizeof array for you.

It doesn't handle all C constructs, but it does attempt to isolate definitions inside evals so that you can get at the definitions that it can translate.

It's only intended as a rough tool. You may need to dicker with the files produced.
