The bindings-common package

[Tags:bsd3, deprecated, library]
Deprecated. in favor of bindings-DSL

Packages named bindings-* contain low level bindings to well known libraries, as a resource to be used by developers of higher level modules. This bindings-common package provides hsc2hs macros that allows writing code for such low level bindings that is easy to read an maintain, while keeping names and functionality as close as possible to the base library. These macros can be used as a simple alternative to, say, c2hs, or to hsc2hs original macros. At this moment, there's no good documentation on how to use them, so please read the code for Bindings.C to understand how they work, or just fill question/sugestion reports in the bug tracking web site. (Caveat: fields of a struct declared as arrays are not properly supported in this release. Pointer fieds, of course, are okay.)
