Simplifies the development of Haskell bindings to C libraries
'c2hs' is an interface generator that simplifies the development of Haskell bindings to C libraries. It processes existing C header files that determine data layout and function signatures on the C side in conjunction with Haskell modules that specify Haskell-side type signatures and marshaling details. Hooks embedded in the Haskell code signal access to C structures and functions; they are expanded by the interfacing tool in dependence on information from the corresponding C header file.
