Re: How can I write gh_longlong2scm, gh_ulonglong2scm and reverse?

For anyone who's interested (which judging from the response isn't
many :>), here's how I added ulonglongs.  This is probably not the
most efficient implementation (it's fairly awkward), but given my
limited knowledge of guile's internals, it's the best I could come up
with in the short time I had.  It also hasn't been thoroughly tested
yet, but it seems OK.  Corrections, improvements, suggestions, all

  static int initialized_p = 0;
  static SCM longlongoffset;
  static SCM mult;
  static SCM add;
  static SCM quotient;
  static SCM remainder;

  static void
  initialize_longlongs() {
    longlongoffset = gh_eval_str("#x100000000");
    mult = gh_eval_str("*");
    add = gh_eval_str("+");
    quotient = gh_eval_str("quotient");
    remainder = gh_eval_str("remainder");
    initialized_p = 42;

  gh_ulonglong2scm(unsigned long long x) {
    const unsigned long upper = x >> 32;
    const unsigned long lower = (unsigned long) (x & 0xFFFFFFFF);
    SCM result;

    if(!initialized_p) initialize_longlongs();

    result = gh_call2(mult, gh_ulong2scm(upper), longlongoffset);
    result = gh_call2(add, result, gh_ulong2scm(lower));


  unsigned long long
  gh_scm2ulonglong(SCM x) {
    unsigned long long result;
    unsigned long upper;
    unsigned long lower;
    SCM upper_scm;
    SCM lower_scm;

    if(!initialized_p) initialize_longlongs();

    upper_scm = gh_call2(quotient, x, longlongoffset);
    lower_scm = gh_call2(remainder, x, longlongoffset);

    upper = gh_scm2ulong(upper_scm);
    lower = gh_scm2ulong(lower_scm);

    result = (((unsigned long long) upper) << 32) | lower;
