class LLD m a b c | b -> c whereSource

Typeclase to allow Left LoaD transform. It is basically to allow a transformation to take place at the last argument/return type of the function. This is because most of the functions are in IO.

class FFIType phi ix whereSource

A class that manages the conversion between the normal and type supported by ffi.
Minimal implementation requires atleast one of the pair toNative*toFFI and fromNative*fromFFI.
The implementation will almost always call fromNative and toNative because all exported functions
are in IO since they all might have side-effects. The only exception to this is for the defaults provided
in this module.

fromList :: CInt -> ix -> IO phiSource

fromNative :: ix -> IO phiSource

FFIType Bool Bool | Numeral values are all also already FFI values, If I've read the documentation correctly Due to GHC matching only the instance heads this instance can't unfortunately be used.

translate :: Defs -> Type -> TypeSource

Tuples are not FFI compatible, As such i'll translate them to a build in tuple datatype . This function translates the embedded types of a Ty to the correct forms using the function translate' (see below)

translatePartial :: Defs -> Type -> TypeSource

Translate everything but applied types. e.g. Foo Token -> FooPtr Token And lists, since lists are implicitly an applied type: e.g [Token] -->> [] Token -->> Ptr Token

isSimpleType :: Type -> BoolSource

Check to see if the next type is a Simple type. e.g. A TyVar or TyCon

translatePrimitive :: Defs -> Type -> TypeSource

Contrary to translate translatePrimitive will only transform the defined primitive types in the convList below. This is because while a transformed signature should only be partially transformed till the first application (Since that'll be the main pointer) we should pre-transform the primitive types into their well known static forms.

translateP :: Defs -> String -> StringSource

Helper function to define translatePrimitive. It attemps to lookup the type in convList but in the case where it's not found the search query is returned.

translatePForm :: Defs -> Type -> TypeSource

Translate Partial Form, This is basically translatePrimitive . translatePartial

translate' :: Defs -> String -> StringSource

Look up the FFI type representation of the given type. Moreover when the type is not found it is assumed to be a new structure and it is assumed to be a pointer value.
