I want to write a program the laces up C code, i.e. takes

void bob(void)

and spits out

void bob(void)

for example. All I need to recognize are functions. It would be nice to
recognize C++ type functions too. I was thinking of hacking up the C/C++
grammar available for ftp at places, but does anyone know of a better
(read easier) way to do it?

Thanks in advance,

[I'd be dubious that it's possible to identify function definitions reliably
with any less work than a full parse. Make sure any simpler scheme isn't
confused by declarations of function pointers and the like. -John]
