Thanks for the pointers. I was trying to follow your first ref which led
me into trouble as it missed out some things like what to inherit from.
The PDF however was useful and I have managed to create myself a 'C'
file. Of course like everything it's out of data as it inherits from
InterpreterPlugin not SmartSyntaxInterpreterPlugin and the method it
uses, 'translate' no longer exists but I found 'translateInDirectory'
seems to be the one to use. I guess having got my 'C' I now need to
figure out how to build it. We is getting there though..
