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)

Install ffcall rpm package:

# zypper install ffcall




2018-02-20 - werner@suse.de
- Correct order of %file and %defattr
2018-02-20 - werner@suse.de
- Allow debuginfo

- Update to (lib)fcall-2.1 release
* Added support for the following platforms:
(Previously, a build on these platforms failed.)
- x86_64: Solaris 11.3.
- OpenBSD 6.1.
- HardenedBSD 10 and 11.
* Fixed a bug regarding passing of pointers on the following platforms:
- x86_64: Linux with x32 ABI: CC="gcc -mx32".
* Fixed a crash in trampoline on the following platforms:
- Update the patch ffcall-trampoline.patch even if not applied
2017-09-11 - werner@suse.de
- Update to (lib)fcall-2.0 release
* The package now installs a library libffcall.{a,so}. It contains the
'avcall' and 'callback' packages. The libraries libavcall.{a,so} and
libcallback.{a,so} are still installed as well, but are deprecated.
* The installed libraries are now installed as shared libraries by default
(except for libvacall, which is still a static library only).
* The installed shared libraries are now properly versioned. This means that
when installing with --enable-shared, upgrading to a newer version of
libffcall will not break existing binaries.
* The installed include files are now platform independent. This means that
you can now install libffcall for different ABIs on the same system, using
the same --prefix option but different --exec-prefix options for each ABI.
* API changes in <trampoline.h>:
- The second argument of alloc_trampoline() is now a 'void**', rather
than a 'void*'.
- The return value of trampoline_variable() is now a 'void**', rather
than a 'void*'.
- The argument of trampoline_address(), trampoline_variable(),
trampoline_data() is now a function pointer instead of a 'void*'.
* Fixed a bug regarding floating-point arguments followed by
non-floating-point arguments on the following platforms:
- arm: Linux 32-bit, with hardware floats.
- powerpc: Linux 32-bit.
- s390: Linux.
* Fixed a bug regarding structure returns on the following platforms:
- i386: FreeBSD.
- i386: MinGW.
- mips: old 32-bit ABI (Linux, IRIX).
* Added support for the following platforms:
(Previously, a build on these platforms failed.)
- i386: MSVC 14.
- x86_64: Cygwin.
- x86_64: MinGW.
- x86_64: MSVC 14.
- hppa64: HP-UX 11.
- m68k: Linux.
* Verified support for the following platforms:
(A build on these platforms worked and still works.)
- i386: FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFly BSD.
- i386: Hurd.
- x86_64: FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD.
- New package libffcall0 to hold the new shared libraries
mainly libffcall.so.0.0.0
2017-06-28 - werner@suse.de
- Accordingly to Bruno Haible the define -DMAP_VARIABLE=MAP_PRIVATE
should become removed
2017-06-26 - werner@suse.de
- Add some more debug code for build architecture
