This might be a very dumb question to ask but I guess asking
a dumb question is better than nodding in apparent comprehension
and completely missing the significance: what *are* libffi
closures and why is it such a big deal when a target gets
I *vaguely* remember closures from my undergrad days and
this page seems to agree with my memories:
but how exactly are they significant for GCJ? I mean,
without closures what does a target lack?
Is there much voodoo involved in implementing closures
for a target that most initial ports of GCJ for a target
come without it?
Many thanks in advance to anyone to clarifies this
