Fiddle::Function

Description

A representation of a C function

Examples

'strcpy'

@libc = Fiddle.dlopen "/lib/libc.so.6"
   #=> #<Fiddle::Handle:0x00000001d7a8d8>
f = Fiddle::Function.new(
  @libc['strcpy'],
  [Fiddle::TYPE_VOIDP, Fiddle::TYPE_VOIDP],
  Fiddle::TYPE_VOIDP)
   #=> #<Fiddle::Function:0x00000001d8ee00>
buff = "000"
   #=> "000"
str = f.call(buff, "123")
   #=> #<Fiddle::Pointer:0x00000001d0c380 ptr=0x000000018a21b8 size=0 free=0x00000000000000>
str.to_s
=> "123"

ABI check

@libc = DL.dlopen "/lib/libc.so.6"
   #=> #<Fiddle::Handle:0x00000001d7a8d8>
f = Fiddle::Function.new(@libc['strcpy'], [TYPE_VOIDP, TYPE_VOIDP], TYPE_VOIDP)
   #=> #<Fiddle::Function:0x00000001d8ee00>
f.abi == Fiddle::Function::DEFAULT
   #=> true

Constants

Public Class Methods

Constructs a Function object.

  • ptr is a referenced function, of a Fiddle::Handle

  • args is an Array of arguments, passed to the ptr function

  • ret_type is the return type of the function

  • abi is the ABI of the function
