Hi there,

I wonder if someone can help me with a nugget of wisdom - I have a pointer to a memory buffer, as well as it's size, and in the memory is compiled squirrel byte code. How can I load this into a squirrel VM and execute it?

I've looked at the sq_readclosure function but can't wrap my head around passing pointers and what not for a custom read function.

Any help would be vastly appreciated :)

well, but that's the only valid approach, like so:


struct arbitrary_readf {
    unsigned char *buf ;
    unsigned char *cur ;
    SQInteger len ;

SQInteger sqarbitrary_read(SQUserPointer fstr,SQUserPointer buf,SQInteger size)
    arbitrary_readf *blk=(arbitrary_readf*)fstr ;
    if (blk->len < size) size= blk->len ;
    blk->len -= size ;
    memcpy(buf,blk->cur,size) ;
    blk->cur += size ;
    return size ;

SQInteger readbuffer(HSQUIRRELVM v,void *ptr,SInteger size)
  arbitrary_readf tmp;
  tmp.buf=tmp.cur=(unsigned char*)ptr ;
  tmp.len=size ;
  return SQ_SUCCEEDED(sq_readclosure(v,sqarbitrary_read,(SQUserPointer)&tmp)))
