hsc2hs: A preprocessor that helps with writing Haskell bindings to C code

[ bsd3, development, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

The hsc2hs program can be used to automate some parts of the process of writing Haskell bindings to C code. It reads an almost-Haskell source file with embedded special constructs, and outputs a real Haskell file with these constructs processed, based on information taken from some C headers. The extra constructs provide Haskell counterparts of C types, values of C constants, including sizes of C types, and access to fields of C structs.

For more details, see the hsc2hs section in the GHC User's Guide.
