Package details

Summary: Convert-Binary-C module for perl

Description:
Convert::Binary::C is a preprocessor and parser for C type definitions.
It is highly configurable and supports arbitrarily complex data structures.
Its object-oriented interface has pack and unpack methods that act as
replacements for Perl's pack and unpack and allow to use C types instead
of a string representation of the data structure for conversion of binary
data from and to Perl's complex data structures.

Actually, what Convert::Binary::C does is not very different from what a
C compiler does, just that it doesn't compile the source code into an object
file or executable, but only parses the code and allows Perl to use the
enumerations, structs, unions and typedefs that have been defined within
your C source for binary data conversion, similar to Perl's pack and unpack.

Beyond that, the module offers a lot of convenience methods to retrieve
information about the C types that have been parsed.
