Bindings to other languages

The following is a list of dyncall bindings to different programming languages. See further projects using dyncall for the implementation of FFIs at showcase/users.



Package rdyncall contributes an advanced FFI for the R programming language and includes recent research results for dynamic binding of C APIs in cross-platform portable manner. The package is on CRAN. The current version of the package is 0.8.0. See details for package on CRAN here.

A paper is available that gives a general introduction to dynamic bindings and discusses the FFI facilities for R offered by the package.
