The HSFFIG package

[ Tags: bsd3, ffi-tools, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Haskell FFI Binding Modules Generator (HSFFIG) is a tool that parses C library include files (.h) and generates Haskell Foreign Functions Interface import declarations for all functions, #define'd constants (where possible), enumerations, and structures/unions (to access their members). It is assumed that the GNU C Compiler and Preprocessor are used. Auto-generated Haskell modules may be imported into an application to get access to the foreign library's functions and variables.

The package provides a small library that programs using auto-generated imports have to link to (specify HSFFIG as one of build-depends), and two executable programs:

Please note that hsffig and ffipkg will likely not work properly with C++ include files.
