Than you for your offer !

I am impressed that Bytestructures works on so many different scheme

I am a bit concerned that it as no proper packaging so it'd be hard to port
it in Guix. That's an issue for me

I took a look at the code, though

I think I understand now

The size of the union'ed field has to be the maximum of the sizes of the
types of the things the field could be populated with

That's all I need, I think, to use make-c-struct

Then I can pass the thing to Ffreexl functions and they will populate it

Then, depending on the contents of the type field, I can parse the thing
accordingly, to get back scheme things

This is the master plan

I can't do it today, though. I'll be busy

I'll get back to you, with this

Thanks for showing me scheme-bytestructures !
