Re: loading functions from a shared library

I've managed to find the time to look at this, and it seems like
 it would be a fairly simple job to add support for the dynamical
 loading of modules.

  I think we could even make it compatable with the XEmacs way of
 doing things without too much effort.

  XEmacs currently implements the module support in two pairs 
 of files:


  Sysdll.[ch] both start with the following text:

/* sysdll.c --- system dependent support for dynamic linked libraries
   Copyright (C) 1998 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
  So I imagine that adding them to the Emacs source tree shouldn't be
 problematic - the emodules file would have to be rewritten, but its
 not a hug job, and it could be kept API compatible - allowing XEmacs
 modules that are not XEmacs-internals-specific to work under GNU

  I'll make an initial implementation over the weekend, time permitting.
