The simplest way to pass pointers across Prolog and C is to store them into a
global array t at index i and pass i as a Prolog integer. Obviously you can
also directly store the structure in the array (this could avoid a malloc/free
for the struct, but requires more memory if the array is large). The Prolog
code receives an integer (which it does not use) and passes it back to another
C code which recover i and uses t[i].
Did I miss something ?
