I initially used c2ada to convert Tcl/Tk header files to Ada.
This several year ago.  I was able to make it work (i.e. not
crash), but it didn't do what I needed to do.  I ended up
creating my own c2ada tool, heavily customized to understand
the special stuff I want to do for the TASH binding.

I've often thought, however, that it would be very interesting
to convert a C header to XML first, then to Ada.  This might
make an easier, more portable tool.
