In order to help a GObject class developer, one obvious idea is
to use some sort of templates for the skeletons and then run
them through a special tool to generate the real C files. <a class="ulink" href="" target="_top">GOB</a> (or GOB2) is
such a tool. It is a preprocessor which can be used to build
GObjects with inline C code so that there is no need to edit the
generated C code. The syntax is inspired by Java and Yacc or
Lex. The implementation is intentionally kept simple: the inline C
code provided by the user is not parsed.
