Heh, if you can just hang on for another day or two I'm about to release 
a much more fully-featured C parser. I've implemented the full C99 
grammar, plus the standard extensions of allowing typedef names to be 
used as identifiers in unproblematic positions (e.g., as struct tags). I 
haven't released it yet but it's getting close.

No pretty printer implemented, though that's generally easier than 
parsing. And you could use my generic pretty-printing library for that:


I'll notify you when I update the c.plt package to version 2:0. RSN.
