Alt::FFI::libffi - Perl Foreign Function interface based on libffi
This distribution provides an alternative implementation of FFI that uses FFI::Platypus which in turn uses
libffi as the underlying implementation instead of
ffcall. This may be useful, as the underlying implementation of the original FFI is
ffcall and is no longer supported and is not actively developed.
env PERL_ALT_INSTALL=OVERWRITE cpanm Alt::FFI::libffi
The connecting code is all pure perl, and not especially fast. You will likely get better performance porting your code to FFI::Platypus. When using the
attach feature of FFI::Platypus, it will likely be faster than the original FFI implementation.
