That's _exactly_, what I want!

If I wanted pidl, I'd be using pidl...

*g* That might be said about me too...
(Not that I'm really off, just not really reading the MLs)

I'll drop him a personal note.

_That_'s a useful addition.

To be honest, I don't really want to mess with the idl
parser at all. I just want to write the emitter for C.

And I surely will take a look at the java emitter a lot.
(In fact, I already did and started rewriting current tng's
marshalling code in response to seeing it.)

And I hope, we will be able to share code for both
