Heh, hoping for someone with tuits to bite, eh? :-) As part of the work on DBI2 I want to create a Perl API that closely
matches the JDBC API. I need a tool that can parse the java .h files that that define the JDBC API, e.g., http://gcc.gnu.org/viewcvs/trunk/libjava/java/sql/Statement.h?revision=120621&view=markup and generate roughly equivalent Perl 6 (roles etc).
I notice that this file (and all of the others I looked at) say at the top: // DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - it is machine generated -*- c++ -*- So, perhaps it's not the .h files we should be parsing, but whatever source files were used to generate them. Though, of course, some C++-to-Perl6 tool would be a good thing too. :-) -Scott -- Jonathan Scott Duff [EMAIL PROTECTED]
