Very informative. Unfortunately the iOS part could be a showstopper for this very project :(

I would really like to improve things in guile. I have been for a long time a linux user and 
still remains my fav operating system, even if I am using a MAC now for work reasons.

But with the impossibility of linking in iOS and not a mature ecmascript backend or lua ready,
this is going to be difficult for now.

Thank you guys.

Here’s a session that uses the FFI from ECMAscript to bind the C
library’s ‘sqrt’ function:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
scheme@(guile-user)> ,L ecmascript
Happy hacking with ECMAScript!  To switch back, type `,L scheme'.
ecmascript@(guile-user)> require('system.foreign');
;;; <unknown-location>: warning: possibly unbound variable `require'
$1 = #<<js-module-object> 27b94b0>
ecmascript@(guile-user)> this['dynamic-link'];
$2 = #<procedure dynamic-link (#:optional _)>
ecmascript@(guile-user)> this['dynamic-func'] ('sqrt', this['dynamic-link']());
$3 = #<pointer 0x7f5d7d79aae0>
ecmascript@(guile-user)> this['list'] ($1['double']);
$8 = (2)
ecmascript@(guile-user)> $1['pointer->procedure'] ($1['double'], $3, $8);
$9 = #<procedure 2a5fa20 (_)>
ecmascript@(guile-user)> $9 (2);
$10 = 1.4142135623730951
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

A bit verbose, but funny.  :-)
