1SUMMARY = "A portable foreign function interface library"
2DESCRIPTION = "The `libffi' library provides a portable, high level programming interface to various calling \
3conventions. This allows a programmer to call any function specified by a call interface description at run \
4time. FFI stands for Foreign Function Interface. A foreign function interface is the popular name for the \
5interface that allows code written in one language to call code written in another language. The `libffi' \
6library really only provides the lowest, machine dependent layer of a fully featured foreign function interface. \
7A layer must exist above `libffi' that handles type conversions for values passed between the two languages."
