Is there a known way to convert a long integer into a graal C VoidPointer type?

chrisn 2021-03-18T22:04:37.004Z

My hacking about produced a compiler error and someone has had to do this by now.

@chris441 You might have some luck asking in the GraalVM slack community

static <T extends PointerBase> T pointer(long val) Unsafe conversion from a Java long value to a pointer.

That won't work at least at the repl.

chrisn 2021-03-18T22:28:15.006200Z

It relies on the compiler being loaded...perhaps it will work during compilation though. =

Huahai 2021-03-18T22:28:32.006700Z

most things in that C api probably won’t work at repl

Huahai 2021-03-18T22:28:45.007Z

they are mostly word, not object, so not good with clojure

Huahai 2021-03-18T22:28:55.007300Z

you will have to wrap them

Thanks, that is really helpful. Testing it out.
