3.11.4 Generating Ada Bindings for C and C++ headers

GNAT includes a binding generator for C and C++ headers which is intended to do 95% of the tedious work of generating Ada specs from C or C++ header files.

Note that this capability is not intended to generate 100% correct Ada specs, and will is some cases require manual adjustments, although it can often be used out of the box in practice.

Some of the known limitations include:

The code generated is using the Ada 2005 syntax, which makes it easier to interface with other languages than previous versions of Ada.
