Arguments: foreign-callable &optional index-or-reuse convert-to-c-types
This function has been renamed register-foreign-callable. Please use that name in new code. This name is maintained for backward compatibility only. The description of register-foreign-callable says:
The name argument must be a symbol defined with defun-foreign-callable (the new name of defun-c-callable).
The index-or-reuse argument can be a fixnum to
select a specific table entry to replace, or the symbol
:reuse to specify that if a function with the same
name is already registered, the function will be replaced at the same
If convert-to-c-types is specified, then an attempt will be made to convert
the return value to a foreign value, otherwise the return value is returned unchanged. It
is important to note that thought the default is
nil, most often the desired
effect is obtained by setting this option to
t. The default of
is retained for compatibility reasons. This is described in a little more detail in the
description of defun-foreign-callable.
