C++ dlopen mini HOWTO. Aaron Isotton.. $Id: C++-dlopen- ,v /12/08 aisotton Exp $. C users will need to include the header file to use this API. dynamically loaded (DL) libraries should also consult the “C++ dlopen mini- HOWTO”. Shared Library Mini-Tutorial A shared library is a binary file that contains a set of callable C functions. Visit the dlopen man page for more information.

And libffi enables you to call functions whose signature is only known at runtime. You should compensate for this by writing extra wrapper calls to wrap the calls to your C interface Normal shared libraries Edit: It is not necessary to dive deeper into the framework’s capabilities because my problem is much more general. Many unnamed others pointing out errors or giving tips to improve this howto.
Using it across several platforms without issues. To do so, you need to know how function calls work at the assembly level of your chosen platform. This will come with a fair amount of boilerplate, but that’s just part of life.

C++ dlopen mini HOWTO – Introduction •
Naming of particular products or brands should not be seen as endorsements. Anything specific to a component must be reachable through that API, in an identical manner from component to component.
Additionally, the component class provides some general numeric functionalities such as math solver and so on.
Notice that some programming languages, notably Common Lisp and Smalltalkare more friendly to the idea of runtime importing functions. These containers can also hold other components cf. You’ll need at least some culture about garbage collection. You could use some JIT compilation library like libgccjit or asmjit.
SBCL is a free software implementation of Common Lisp, and compiles to machine code at every REPL interaction and is even mini-howro to garbage collect machine code, and can save an entire core image file which can be later easily restarted. We mean a library that is loaded vi dlopen and its symbols resolved via dlsym not a standard shard library that is dynamically loaded by the runtime system.
But the question was not about runtime plugins I will change that in a second nor is the answer for plugins. Three Easy Pieces for a good overview.
