Unhappy searching a particular file and parsing it


I want a code in C++ that searches for all .h files and parses it
that is get function names and their return types and write them in XML format.

Why in c++ and not in bash or perl or other scripting language?
A combination of grep, sed and awk in a script would probably do the trick.

You may want to post a .h extract and the .xml that it would generate.
