33.19. Interface to D-Bus

This is an FFI-based interface to the D-Bus message bus system, a simple way for applications to talk to one another.

The package DBUS is :CASE-SENSITIVE, e.g., you would write (dbus:dbus_error_init ...) when you need to call the C function dbus_error_init.

When this module is present, *FEATURES* contains the symbol :D-BUS.

All public C functions are available as FFI:FOREIGN-FUNCTIONs, defined in modules/dbus/dbus.lisp.

See modules/dbus/test.tst for sample usage.
