Calling Factor from C
Factor handbook > C library interface

Prev:Calling C from Factor
Next:Passing data between Factor and C

Callbacks can be defined and passed to C code as function pointers; the C code can then invoke the callback and run Factor code:
alien-callback ( return parameters abi quot -- alien )


There are some caveats concerning the conversion of Factor objects to C values, and vice versa. See Passing data between Factor and C.
