     C2VB parses through C style declarations of functions, structures etc and creates the VB equivalent. I decided to create this little program to make my life easier when working with APIs. Instead of having to "translate" an API declaration from the Platform SDK help file, I wanted a way to do that automatically. This is the result. All you have to do, is copy paste the declaration from the help file. Apart from being a handy app. it demonstrates how to parse instructions, how to implement a rudimentary splitter and above all, it explains what do all those wierd things mean in C! It can process either user inputted instructions or it can read from a file. Optionally, a filename can be passed on the command line. If you have any comments or disagree with the way I converted the datatypes, let me know.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
