  Description     : C data types for FFI

FFI::C provide tools for building classes to interface for
common C data types. Arrays, struct, union and nested types based on those
are supported.

Core FFI::Platypus also provides FFI::Platypus::Record for manipulating
and passing structured data. Typically you want to use FFI::C instead,
the main exception is when you need to pass structured data by value
instead of by reference.

To work with C APIs that work with C file pointers you can use FFI::C::File
and FFI::C::PosixFile. For C APIs that expose the POSIX stat structure
use FFI::C::Stat.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
