4 Working Beyond the Lisp Environment
4.3 The C-to-FFI facility Translating from C's syntax to the syntax of the Foreign Function Interface can be a tedious process, when done by hand. However, all the necessary information for the translation is present in the C source and header files, making it possible to automate the process.
This is the purpose of the C-to-FFI translation facility. By calling the function
translate-c-file, you can automatically output the Lisp code that is required.
The constructs that make up the C-to-FFI translation facility are extensions to Common Lisp.
