    I've been working in implementing libffi into Euphoria so we can call Raylib functions directly. Previously, Euphoria did not support passing structures by value and only occasionally could we get away with "faking" it by passing int type values directly (but not float types). Raylib is the first library I've run into that makes heavy use of passing structures by value, so it's been an interesting challenge. My original proof of concept worked well with libffi built as a shared library, so now I'm working on building libffi directly into the backend of Euphoria. Then we'll be off and running with full support for Raylib!
  • kivy-ios / initial build with toolchain keeps getting stuck here (checking for suffix of executables...) after updating macOS and xcode... any thoughts? Thanks!

    If you have read my earlier posts you know I love multilingual programming. One important part of multilingual programming is how to interface one language with other. Typically this is called FFI or foreign function interface. At the lowest level often there are libraries (aka bindings) to talk across languages or across implementations of same language e.g. libffi. In my undergrad we did a group project where we created language bindings to separate algorithmic part written in python and opencv and X11 logic in c.
