htod - const
I have this file tmp.h:

const char *getvalue(const char *key);

I run htod tmp.h and I've got the output

-----------------------------------
/* Converted to D from tmp.h by htod */
module tmp;
//C     const char *getvalue(const char *key);
extern (C):
char * getvalue(char *key);
-----------------------------------

Why is 'const' removed?

cause htod sucks.
D1 didn't have const and htod wasn't updated for ages.

trass3r, I wouldn't say that it sucks. It has really helped a lot in
porting some simple header files. It  goes terribly bad on the more complex
though.

Sadly, using regular expressions is much more efficient.
At least those don't destroy the source by removing const, comments,  
evaluating preprocessor directives, etc.

Do you have some script that does that and sorta works? I've tried
others (e.g. dstep but couldn't get LLVM to compile unfortunately..).
