Thanks for the quick response Brad! And thanks for your suggestion about

Clang and source navigator (sourcenav.berlios.de) are the two tools that

That is not possible.  The patch that performs the dump is specifically
integrated with the source code of GCC that relates to C++ compilation.
One would need to develop a brand new patch against the C99 compilation

There is no active development for that.  Our design goal is for C++98
support only.

I suggest looking at Clang:


It's an open-source compiler designed as part of a modular toolchain
infrastructure (LLVM).  You can probably base source analysis tools off of
