RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for h2ph (redhat section 1)

H2PH(1) 			 Perl Programmers Reference Guide			  H2PH(1)

NAME
       h2ph - convert .h C header files to .ph Perl header files

SYNOPSIS
       h2ph [-d destination directory] [-r | -a] [-l] [headerfiles]

DESCRIPTION
       h2ph converts any C header files specified to the corresponding Perl header file format.
       It is most easily run while in /usr/include:

	       cd /usr/include; h2ph * sys/*

       or

	       cd /usr/include; h2ph * sys/* arpa/* netinet/*

       or

	       cd /usr/include; h2ph -r -l .

       The output files are placed in the hierarchy rooted at Perl's architecture dependent
       library directory.  You can specify a different hierarchy with a -d switch.

       If run with no arguments, filters standard input to standard output.

OPTIONS
       -d destination_dir
	   Put the resulting .ph files beneath destination_dir, instead of beneath the default
	   Perl library location ($Config{'installsitsearch'}).

       -r  Run recursively; if any of headerfiles are directories, then run h2ph on all files in
	   those directories (and their subdirectories, etc.).	-r and -a are mutually exclusive.

       -a  Run automagically; convert headerfiles, as well as any .h files which they include.
	   This option will search for .h files in all directories which your C compiler ordinar-
	   ily uses.  -a and -r are mutually exclusive.

       -l  Symbolic links will be replicated in the destination directory.  If -l is not speci-
	   fied, then links are skipped over.

       -h  Put ``hints'' in the .ph files which will help in locating problems with h2ph.  In
	   those cases when you require a .ph file containing syntax errors, instead of the cryp-
	   tic

		   [ some error condition ] at (eval mmm) line nnn

	   you will see the slightly more helpful

		   [ some error condition ] at filename.ph line nnn

	   However, the .ph files almost double in size when built using -h.

       -D  Include the code from the .h file as a comment in the .ph file.  This is primarily
	   used for debugging h2ph.

       -Q  ``Quiet'' mode; don't print out the names of the files being converted.

ENVIRONMENT
       No environment variables are used.

FILES
	/usr/include/*.h
	/usr/include/sys/*.h

       etc.

DIAGNOSTICS
       The usual warnings if it can't read or write the files involved.

BUGS
       Doesn't construct the %sizeof array for you.

       It doesn't handle all C constructs, but it does attempt to isolate definitions inside
       evals so that you can get at the definitions that it can translate.

       It's only intended as a rough tool.  You may need to dicker with the files produced.

       You have to run this program by hand; it's not run as part of the Perl installation.

       Doesn't handle complicated expressions built piecemeal, a la:

	   enum {
	       FIRST_VALUE,
	       SECOND_VALUE,
	   #ifdef ABC
	       THIRD_VALUE
	   #endif
	   };

       Doesn't necessarily locate all of your C compiler's internally-defined symbols.
