Thx god.

Just to avoid misunderstandings:
The frontend I have in mind, will be something of a dialog to easily manage the h2pas options and add some functions to the IDE, to make the boring search&replace easier, which is often needed before/after applying h2pas.
These options and editing steps can be saved to a file, so that the next time a newer version of the header files can be converted faster.
I think, this could help to accelerate the conversion process.
Of course I'm not a c to pascal conversion crack, and I don't know any such frontend, so I need some help to gather good ideas, what functions are needed for c to pascal conversion.
