haskell-gi-0.22.2: Generate Haskell bindings for GObject Introspection capable libraries

Safe HaskellNone




genCCallableWrapper :: Name -> Text -> Callable -> ExcCodeGen () Source #

Generate a wrapper for a known C symbol.

genDynamicCallableWrapper :: Name -> Text -> Callable -> ExcCodeGen Text Source #

Generate a wrapper for a dynamic C symbol (i.e. a Haskell function that will invoke its first argument, which should be a FunPtr of the appropriate type). The caller should have created a type synonym with the right type for the foreign symbol.

data ForeignSymbol Source #

The foreign symbol to wrap. It is either a foreign symbol wrapped in a foreign import, in which case we are given the name of the Haskell wrapper, or alternatively the information about a "dynamic" wrapper in scope.


KnownForeignSymbol Text

Haskell symbol in scope.

DynamicForeignSymbol DynamicWrapper

Info about the dynamic wrapper.

data ExposeClosures Source #

Whether to expose closures and the associated destroy notify handlers in the Haskell wrapper.

skipRetVal :: Callable -> Bool Source #

Whether to skip the return value in the generated bindings. The C convention is that functions throwing an error and returning a gboolean set the boolean to TRUE iff there is no error, so the information is always implicit in whether we emit an exception or not, so the return value can be omitted from the generated bindings without loss of information (and omitting it gives rise to a nicer API). See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=649657

callableSignature :: Callable -> ForeignSymbol -> ExcCodeGen Signature Source #

The Haskell signature for the given callable. It returns a tuple ([constraints], [(type, argname)]).

data Signature Source #

Signature for a callable.

fixupCallerAllocates :: Callable -> Callable Source #

caller-allocates arguments are arguments that the caller allocates, and the called function modifies. They are marked as out argumens in the introspection data, we sometimes treat them as inout arguments instead. The semantics are somewhat tricky: for memory management purposes they should be treated as "in" arguments, but from the point of view of the exposed API they should be treated as "out" or "inout". Unfortunately we cannot always just assume that they are purely "out", so in many cases the generated API is somewhat suboptimal (since the initial values are not important): for example for g_io_channel_read_chars the size of the buffer to read is determined by the caller-allocates argument. As a compromise, we assume that we can allocate anything that is not a TCArray of length determined by an argument.

callableHInArgs :: Callable -> ExposeClosures -> ([Arg], [Arg]) Source #

In arguments for the given callable on the Haskell side, together with the omitted arguments.

callableHOutArgs :: Callable -> [Arg] Source #

Out arguments for the given callable on the Haskell side.

wrapMaybe :: Arg -> CodeGen Bool Source #

Given an argument to a function, return whether it should be wrapped in a maybe type (useful for nullable types). We do some sanity checking to make sure that the argument is actually nullable (a relatively common annotation mistake is to mix up (optional) with (nullable)).
