We are aware that many users want AOP support for pure C. Therefore, 
this feature is the first item on our roadmap (see aspectc.org) for 
version 1.0pre2 - 1.0. The order of items does not reflect the exact 
priority of the new features, but it was the first point that came into 
my mind when I wrote this list ;-).

It currently looks as if version 1.0pre2 will be mainly a bug fix 
release that improves 1.0pre1 without adding any important new features. 
I hope that it will come very soon.

Version 1.0pre3 might become the first version with preliminary C 
support. However, don't expect this version before january.

Meanwhile you can check if you have more success with Arachne (a dynamic 
weaver), XWeaver, or C4. Of course, I hope that eventually AspectC++ 
(for C) will be the best solution ;-) for you.
