I'd like to be able to find the lisp object that belongs to some
of the Mac 'objects' I have floating around my program. A standard
technique is to put the 'name' of the lisp object into the refcon
of the Mac 'object'. But how do I convince lisp that the value that
I get out of the refcon is really an object.
This is a very unsafe thing to do. If a GC happens, your object
will move and the address in the refcon will not be updated.
The only safe way I can think of to do what you want is to keep
a hash table mapping integers to objects. Then you can put the
integers in the refcon.
