1.9 Built in interface to external libraries

Vicare comes with some interface to external libraries built into the vicare C language executable itself; this is done only for some particular libraries which especially benefit from a dedicated interface inconvenient to implement with the FFI. At the Scheme level the API is exported by libraries not included in Vicare’s boot image.

Such interfaces are excluded by default, they must be explicitly requested at installation–time with command line options for the configure script.
