  • All structs can be redfined in nearly identical syntax
  • All (pointer) types are identified automatically and conversion is
    performed automatically to the above defined structs
  • char* <-> String type conversion

    change lists in ruby by replacing C-allocated values by Ruby allocated
  • nested structs are handled automatically

corresponding Ruby module don’t hesitate to drop by at:

Happy Hacking!
