I have a function that accepts a void* as a parameter

Im trying to convert this to use as the void*

Code: Select all
float trainingData[4][2] = { {501, 10}, {255, 10}, {501, 255}, {10, 501} };


this is how i do a void* 1d array

Code: Select all
  float labels[4] = {1.0, -1.0, -1.0, -1.0};

(labels (foreign-alloc :float :initial-contents '(1.0 -1.0 -1.0 -1.0)))


so how do i do the 2d array

It looks like cffi doesn't support multi-dimensional arrays. C stores multi-dimension arrays in row-major order, and the wikipedia page gives quite a good write-up of how to map between linear arrays (that you can allocate with cffi) and what the foreign code expects.

The row-major order link in my post was a link to the wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Row-major.
