CDECL as visual tool

I saw an article showing command line use of cdecl where the results were given like a help file.

i.e; "cdecl int *(char b) and the output explained what was happening.,

Also in reverse, i.e.; Describe in words, and you get a formula.

I cant find anything on this. Does anyone know what I m talking about?

No. I have no idea what you're talking about.

cdecl is a "calling convention" for C based languages.

This is a link to K&R C Programming, section 5.12 on page 100 has some code to convert from a complex declaration to words, not sure about the other way though.

I think you're talking about the command line interface to
That's clever. There's a link on the site to the source code. You can download it, build it and run it (with -i for interactive).
It is possible, here is a link.

I just don't know how to do it on Windows???
