Outdated CHICKEN release

This is a manual page for an old and unsupported version of CHICKEN. If you are still using it, please consider migrating to the latest version. You can find the manual for the latest release here.

Interface to external functions and variables

The macros in this section, such as define-foreign-type and define-external, are available in the foreign import library. To access them:

(import foreign)

Note: Using the foreign library directly from the interpreter or the REPL will not work.
