Embedding Factor into C applications
Factor handbook > C library interface

Prev:DLL handles

The Factor Makefile builds the Factor VM both as an executable and a library. The library can be used by other applications. File names for the library on various operating systems:
OSLibrary nameShared?
Windows XP/Vistafactor.dllYes
Mac OS Xlibfactor.dylibYes
Other Unixlibfactor.aNo

An image file must be supplied; a minimal image can be built, however the compiler must be included for the embedding API to work (see Command line switches for bootstrap).
