But, I haven't hacked clang before and am not even sure how to get started. Is there anyone here who hacks on clang who could give me a quick outline of what the implementation to these would probably look like? What APIs to use, basically?

I can write up an outline about how to write a clang_delta pass in a couple of days. In the meanwhile, you can check out the excellent example given by Eli Bendersky:


Both Eli's example and clang_delta follow the same principle:

(1) Inherit RecursiveASTVisitor to visit AST nodes; and

(2) rely on the Rewriter to rewrite the given source file.
