Samba3 backend to pidl

tags = [, ]

Two days ago, I finally took the time to sit down and attempt to write a Samba3 backend to pidl (the IDL compiler in Samba 4). Turned out to be much easier then I expected! It took me two evenings (~16 hours total) to write basic NDR parser, header, server, client and template generators.

The code currently generated runs inside of the Samba3 tree without modifications (uses no additional helper functions and the like). I'm currently focussing on making the DFS interface autogenerated. Most things seem to work now, except for some name changes (the functions in Samba3 and Samba4's IDL don't have the same names). I'm working on that now. The latest generated sources are available at .
