If this works, then my proposal will not be necessary. (So far, though, it's become fairly messy. As I was telling someone else, I was hoping to "evolve" the code towards embedded-Scheme. It would be too much work to make everything "smob-able" given the size of the C program and this proposed (I guess) emulation of closures in C would ease the transition. ("Smob-ification" would have been a lot easier if I could have used SWIG, but apparently Guile support has been pulled.)) -- Robert Brown | Continuum Software, Inc. email:firstname.lastname@example.org | 800 West Cummings Park, Ste 4950 http://www.continuumsi.com/~robertb | Woburn, MA 01801-6504 voice: 781-932-8400 x100 | fax: 781-932-2558
