ExtUtils::XSBuilder is a set of modules to parse C header files and
create XS glue code and documentation from it.
Ideally this allows you to "write" an interface to a C library
without coding a line.  Although this module automates much of the
process, you must still be familiar with C and XS programming since no
C API is ideal and usually some adjuments are necessary.  When the C
API changes, most of the time you only have to rerun XSBuilder to get
your new Perl API.
