Knit is a new component definition and linking language that can be used with C and assembly code. Knit supports component definitions that require little or no modification to existing code. It automatically schedules component initializers and finalizers and provides an extensible constraint system to detect subtle errors in component composition. Knit provides cross-module inlining that largely eliminates the overheads of componentization, supports component hierarchies, and supports cyclic component dependencies. Knit can be used for any C program, but is especially well suited for use in systems that have many separate components, multiple implementations of the same component, intricate initialization requirements, complex component interdependencies, low-level code and embedded systems, or code that is used in radically different configurations.
Haskell FFI Binding Modules Generator (HSFFIG) is a tool that takes a C library include file (.h) and generates Haskell Foreign Functions Interface import declarations for all functions, #define's (where possible), enumerations, and structures/unions (to access their members). It is assumed that GNU C Compiler and Preprocessor are used. Auto-generated Haskell modules may be imported into an application to get access to the foreign library's functions and variables.
