6.20.5 Foreign Pointers

The previous sections have shown how Guile can be extended at runtime by loading compiled C extensions. This approach is all well and good, but wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t have to write any C at all? This section takes up the problem of accessing C values from Scheme, and the next discusses C functions.
