libffi-3.2.1-2 built for aix6.1


Description

Compilers for high level languages generate code that follow certain conventions. These conventions are necessary, in part, for separate compilation to work. One such convention is the "calling convention". The calling convention is a set of assumptions made by the compiler about where function arguments will be found on entry to a function. A calling convention also specifies where the return value for a function is found. Some programs may not know at the time of compilation what arguments are to be passed to a function. For instance, an interpreter may be told at run-time about the number and types of arguments used to call a given function. `Libffi' can be used in such programs to provide a bridge from the interpreter program to compiled code. The `libffi' library provides a portable, high level programming interface to various calling conventions. This allows a programmer to call any function specified by a call interface description at run time. FFI stands for Foreign Function Interface. A foreign function interface is the popular name for the interface that allows code written in one language to call code written in another language. The `libffi' library really only provides the lowest, machine dependent layer of a fully featured foreign function interface. A layer must exist above `libffi' that handles type conversions for values passed between the two languages.

Known dependencies

Special note about GCC libraries: Though all other RPMs built on AIX 6.1 can be installed and used on AIX versions greater or equal to 6.1, GCC RPMs can be installed and used on only ONE version of AIX: the one it was built on/for. As an example, libgcc-8.3.0-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm can be installed and used ONLY on AIX 6.1 . If you need GCC 8.3 on AIX 7.2, download libgcc-8.3.0-1.aix7.2.ppc.rpm. About libgcc, libstdc++, and libgomp, when they appear below, their version and the version of AIX in the following are given ONLY as an example. (By default, the last uploaded version of the required GCC libraries is displayed.)
As an example, if you see: "libstdc++-8.3.0-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm" below, that only means that you need libstdc++ library to be installed on your machine, and you may install the version of GCC (or only the RPM of this library) that you want (like 6.3) that was built for the version of AIX (like 7.1) where you want to install the current package (here: libstdc++-6.3.0-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm). Thus, you have to download and install GCC libraries separately and according to your specific needs.
