No.  The parser *is* a compiler.  It needs the full translation
unit just like any other compiler.  However, you can use
-fxml-start=some_decl to dump only a subset of the parsed
declarations to xml.

This is not supported by gccxml.

Perhaps but it has not been maintained with the rest of gccxml
so I do not know if it would still work.

I suggest looking at Clang instead:
