Low level support facilities

The high level functions for calling C routines or for accessing global variables are all built upon a relatively small number of built-in primitives which perform specific low-level tasks. You should seldom have any need to deal with these primitives directly, but they are nonetheless available should you need to make use of them.

Melange generates code using the Open Dylan C-FFI. The lower level direct-c-ffi isn’t documented yet.
