puts the fun newLISP button back in Lisp


C-libraries can be imported to newLISP. Some of the libraries mentioned on this page are supported by newLISP module files.

Note, that the MS Windows version of newLISP uses standard call stdcall conventions to call DLL library routines by default. This is necessary to call DLLs belonging to the Windows operating system like odbc32.dll. Most third party DLL's are compiled for 'C' declaration cdecl conventions. newLISP can use both calling conventions. 64-bit versions of Windows also come with 32-bit libraries suitable for 32-bit newLISP. newLISP compiled for LINUX and other UNIX uses the cdecl conventions by default for calling functions in shared libraries. Most UNIX libraries are available in 32-bit and 64-bit.
