I'm attempting to convert a c header to d using htod.  If this is not 
current best practice please point me in another direction.

C:\dir>htod -I c:\d\dm\include ocilib.h

Putting stdlib.h in same dir with header I'm converting gives no joy either.

There's nothing wrong with using htod if you can get it to work. However, the question is whether you can get it to work for what you're doing. And as I understand it, you're gonig to have to go over what it did after it did it, because it doesn't do a perfect job. But if you can get it to work, it's definitely desirable, since it'll save you a fair bit of work. But unfortunately, htod Windows-only, and I haven't been converting much C code lately, I don't know it well enough to really help you get it working. It _is_ worth using though. - Jonathan M Davis

htod is a fork of dmc or something, right? How difficult is it to update the program to make it more user friendly? Is the source public? Would it be better to use gcc or clang instead? htod is a great thought, but I haven't either gotten it to work for anything but the simplest cases.

My expectation is not that I can htod that 17k line header and magically 
have a d module.  A lot of the header is #define'd constants and 
typedefs and I _do_ expect htod to remove some of the scutwork involved 
there.

At this point I'd just be happy if it ran w/o error.

I also played with the idea. Clang's Rewrite facilities should be perfect for that.

Yes, I guess so.

I don't know yet. I'm avoiding the preprocessor for as long as I can.

Should really be a community effort :)

I guess so. It started out as a better implementation of my DStep project. To convert Objective-C headers to D modules. But since Objective-C is C as well it needs to handle all C as well. I guess I can put it on github. But currently it's patches for clang, just so I could get a quick start. -- /Jacob Carlborg

 C:\dir>htod -I c:\d\dm\include ocilib.h

You have an extra space there. Use: htod -IC:\d\dm\include ocilib.h That will work.
