Manuel Chakravarty (
c2hs is an interface generator that simplifies the development of
Haskell bindings to C libraries. The tool
processes existing C header files that determine data layout and
function signatures on the C side in conjunction with Haskell modules
that specify Haskell-side type signatures and marshaling details.
Hooks embedded in the Haskell code signal access to C structures and
functions -- they are expanded by the interfacing tool in dependence
on information from the corresponding C header file. Another
noteworthy property is the lightweight nature of the approach.
More background information is available in a research paper
c2hs, which is at
this paper does not cover the more recent advanced features such as
function hooks and conditional compilation.
