LispView & X-Windows
I am currently working with Sun Common Lisp 4.0.1 under OpenWindows on a Sparc 2, and am wondering if anyone can answer the following question:
The LispView package included with SCL is perfect for placing calls to XView, but very few Xlib calls are implemented. Missing routines such as polygon-fill and arbitrary-shape regions would speed-up developpement tremendously (as I am just starting in Lisp). How can I define calls to Xlib from within Lisp? I checked out the Foreign Function Interface, but since LispView is written using CLOS, the internal structure of such objects as displays & canvases is unknown, therefore preventing me from passing the proper parameters & pointers to the C librarys.
Any help or suggestions welcome!
