1. API Extractor OverviewΒΆ

The API Extractor library is used by the binding generator to parse headers of a given library and merge this data with information provided by typesystem (XML) files, resulting in a representation of how the API should be exported to the chosen target language. The generation of source code for the bindings is performed by specific generators using the API Extractor library.

The API Extractor is based on QtScriptGenerator codebase.
