   The situation Erlang need to follow C style data structure, before send to C, you need to convert Erlang record into C style date structure, right? And you said there are pretty  C structures. In fact you can implement an module encode/decode Erlang record into C style automatically. Phase  C head file then write to an file that can tell Erlang how to do the alignment for specify signal.  It's not too difficult, just write it by yourself.

主题: [erlang-questions] operate C data structure using Erlang


Currently I'm working a Erlang project which need send msg represent by C language data structure.
I know that Erlang have record represent by tuple, Is there have any open source project aim on resolve this problem? 
generate record format for C data structure automatically? note that there have many C data structure need to transform.

There have JSON and protobuf, but none is toward plain C data structure, I cannot change the message protocol now because Erlang node need to communicate with C node.
