There's none - it parses the text to figure out what you mean (basically, engrish must start with "define" iirc - it's probably been 5-10 years since I toyed with cdecl last :))
- carpe noctem

Sorry f0dder, but that was my lame attempt at continuing the joke.
Wishful thinking perhaps, that plain english could be translated into leet C code.  :-[
It's one thing to "Declare bar as const pointer", quite another to "Shoot death star, make asplode".  :P

I kinda figured that was what cdecl was doing, and it's interesting in it's own right, but I wonder if it could be used as a tool to help aspiring programmers learn?

It'd probably be most useful as a tool for deciphering legacy code that's been dropped in your lap...

One day there'll be such a thing, but at that point all the clever coding will be done by systems themselves. We will be wearing silver suits and flying around in our own personal hover pods.

However, I do like your idea of a programming language whose sole purpose is to help people think in a programmy way.
