Subject [lucy-user] Using Lucy directly from C
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2012 12:35:24 GMT
I'm well aware of the purpose of Lucy, but is it not possible to use it directly from C? I
can't find any documents regarding this, and the INSTALL file says "Currently it is available
via Perl bindings.", which almost suggests "you're on your own if you're going to use Lucy
from C" (and this sounds quite awkward for a C library).

I'm also trying to write Go bindings (which is normally done via cgo, which allows Go code
to directly call C functions), and using cgo doesn't require any of the binding magics that
ships with Lucy --it works best with a plain, old C API.
