CVS is imported, too.
Note that I left the top-level module named 'ffcall' instead of 'libffcall'. Let me know if you need this renamed.

I approved your project.

Before to upload new code at Savannah though, please specify the version of the GNU GPL you use, and "or (at your option) any later version.".
There are also several .s files without copyright or license notice; maybe those are generated, though usually there's no generated files in CVS.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: libffcall - foreign function call libraries
  • System Name:  libffcall
  • Type: Official GNU software
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later


This is a collection of four libraries which can be used to build
foreign function call interfaces in embedded interpreters.

The four packages are:

    avcall - calling C functions with variable arguments

    vacall - C functions accepting variable argument prototypes

    trampoline - closures as first-class C functions

    callback - closures with variable arguments as first-class C functions
               (a reentrant combination of vacall and trampoline)

Other Comments:

ffcall has been developed as a part of CLISP and until now has been living in the CLISP CVS repository under clisp/clisp/ffcall:
$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@clisp.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/clisp login
$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@clisp.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/clisp co -P clisp/clisp/ffcall
you can get the cvs tree via rsync as described in http://sourceforge.net/docs/E04/#rsync
$ rsync -av rsync://clisp.cvs.sourceforge.net/cvsroot/clisp/clisp/ffcall/* .
