Does any one know how I can automaticaly generate header files with prototypes for all functions with external linkage (e.g. not static). I am using gcc.

Also it would be a bonus it I could generate the headers for c++ files as well.

I'm sure you could use sed and awk to do it too.

I tryed to write a regular expression to find all function definitions once before, It was mind bogalingly hard and only found 90%. If it worked I would use it as you suggested. If you know where I can get regexps for the job that work, ill give it a go.
