No, your code is wrong. You are lucky that it works, but that is just
by chance. With a different compiler or platform it will not work, the
errors are random and unpredictable. For me it gives 'segmentation

Well, kind of. You can query the attributes from C, using the
igraph_i_attribute_* functions (see igraph_attribute.h). But cannot

data types. E.g. the R attribute handler can store R objects, this
does not make sense in C.
