Hi All,

I have created a helper for generating FFI code for Guile.   The current use case is to create file called a "ffi module" that specifies includes and libraries that will be used to create a loadable Guile module. In the process, the FFI Helper (FH) parses C code and, from that, generates Guile
FFI code.

Thanks a lot! I promised to test ffi helper but got side tracked.




I think the package is at a very usable point right now, and
I am starting to converge on a 1.0 release.  So now I am
soliciting inputs on other ways to use this package.  Namely,
are convenience routines needed for some use cases?



1. Is it possible to have a program or subcommand of guild that
   does take a header file from stdin and prints the bindings to stdout.

2. What do you think of PSSI

3. is it possible to specify a 'renamer' procedure that takes as argument a symbol representing the kind of thing (enum, member, static variable, struct, typdef, function, constant macro...) and the original name of the original name of the thing. The goal here is to allow to have schemey variable

4. In the module definition, is it possible to add some code that will be appended
   to the generated file?

5. In the module definition, is it possible to declare the interface of the generated
