What is tricky with analyzing C are macros and preprocessors directive.
srcML does a satisfactory job. But indeed, having a solution based on PetitParser is indeed promising.

Cheers,

The idea of this work is to be able to feed the parser with C headers and automagically get the C bindings done in smalltalk.
