C API in Coin

Issue #94 new
Former user created an issue

Is the C API (not C++) mentioned in Appendix B of "The Inventor Mentor" available in Coin? Having it would simplify a project I am working on (Scheme FFI wrapper).

Thank you.

    I'm sorry but the C API isn't available in Coin. Coin is written almost entirely in C++ and the thus the API is C++. Unfortunately there is currently no plan to add a C API.

    Thank you for your asking though. Your request is noted.

    Best wishes for you own project.

    I appreciate the info, Roy. I think I can recreate the C API with some work. Are you interested in hosting the code in this repository if I am successful? If not, I guess you can close this issue out. Thanks again for your efforts on maintaining Coin!

    If you would like us too then I think we should consider hosting the C API. It is probably going to depend on how you set it up relative to the C++ API.

    Have you been following our progress on the replacement of the old autotools with CMake? Is this going to impact your work?

    If there is anything I can help you with please don't hesitate to get back to me.

    I hope your efforts are successful.
