So, for the moment, we are only handling basic types. That said, for the enum 
in C, we will print according to the type of the enum.
In the future versions, I really want to be able to print the name of the enum 
so that the output is more relevent.
Anyway, the rule I followed for the moment is : if I don't recognize the type, 
I print it as an address.

Do you really think that I should throw an error just because there is a 
bitfield ?
I was thinking about just accepting the fact that the bitfield outputs are not 
correct but permit the user to pretty print the remaining part of the structure.
What do you think ?
