Autogenerating XS-glue Code
ExtUtilsXSBuilder is a set modules to parse C header files and create XS glue code and documentation out of it. Ideally this allows to “write” an interface to a C library without coding a line. Since no C-API is ideal, some adjustments are necessary most of the time. So to use this module you must still be familiar with C and XS programming, but it removes a lot of stupid work and copy&paste from you. Also when the C API changes, most of the time you only have to rerun XSBuilder to get your new Perl API.
