bug#10974: address@hidden

Hi, All,

For use from a Fortran program I am collecting API fixes for libguile.so
as wrapper functions for what is provided to C-programs as macros.
I noted that some of the macros are function-macros some are symbol
macros. An example of the latter is

  #define scm_to_int scm_to_int23

This is inconsistent and makes escaping such macros slightly more difficult.
(Honestly I dont know a way yet).

One guile developer on IRC said this is "probably a good thing to fix"
so I report
it here. I dont build Guile 2 myself as the installations I use are quite

As a background, Fortran allows you to declare "foreign" functions, for example,
like this:

type, public, bind(c) :: scm_t
   integer(c_intptr_t) :: do_not_ever_use
end type scm_t

  function scm_symbol_p (obj) result (yes) bind (c)
     type(scm_t), intent(in), value :: obj
    type(scm_t) :: yes
  end function scm_symbol_p
end interface

This makes use of library functions quite handy. But it does not provide a
way to access a C-macro, naturally.


#include <libguile.h>

SCM guile_macro_scm_from_int (int i);
int guile_macro_scm_to_int (SCM obj);

int (scm_is_true) (SCM obj);
int (scm_is_symbol) (SCM obj);

int (scm_is_null) (SCM obj);
SCM (scm_eol) (void);

SCM guile_macro_scm_from_int (int i)
  return scm_from_int(i);

int guile_macro_scm_to_int (SCM obj)
  return scm_to_int(obj);

int (scm_is_true) (SCM obj)
  return scm_is_true(obj);

int (scm_is_symbol) (SCM obj)
  return scm_is_symbol(obj);

int (scm_is_null) (SCM obj)
  return scm_is_null(obj);

SCM (scm_eol) ()
  return SCM_EOL;
