Sphinx c:header directive
At the beginning of the description of a header file in your documentation, insert a corresponding c:header directive as follows:
.. c:header:: <libfoobar.h>
The aforementioned creates an index entry of: libfoobar.h (C header).
For a real usage example, see the http://libcpr.org documentation. The corresponding Sphinx sources can be found at: https://github.com/dryproject/libcpr/tree/master/doc/manual
Refer to the PyPI Tutorial for installation instructions. If you have a modern Python environment, installation should be as easy as:
$ sudo pip install sphinxcontrib-cheader
To enable the extension, edit your Sphinx conf.py configuration file to include the extension name in the extensions list; for example:
extensions = ['sphinxcontrib.cheader']
