passing a C function back to C library

Christoph Egger
Hi!

[0] discusses how to pass a callback to some C library. Now I would like
to pass a function from some C library to some C library. Is there a
better way to express this than using <cCall ...> to get a smalltalk
function and CCallbackDescriptor to pass it back?

You can get the address of a C function with something like

   CFunctionDescriptor addressOf: 'unlink'

If the function is not defined, the returned object will satisfy #isNull:

   st> (CFunctionDescriptor addressOf: 'unlink') isNull
   false
   st> (CFunctionDescriptor addressOf: 'aaa') isNull
   true
