dyncall C library to build C function pointers dynamically at run time to call functions from DLLs after dynamically loading them. Normally after dynamically loading DLLs and to call the functions contained therein, we need . This approach was used when I wrote my own programming language and interpreter (called "kkh interpreter") that allows embedding C functions or C++ functions (with a C interface) anywhere inside the code (of the kkh interpreter programming language). In the background during run-time, the system automatically compiles all C/C++ functions that the user embed using libtcc or mingw64 to DLLs and automatically load them immediately to the make those functions available. Thus, the "kkh interpreter" can also be treated as a C or C++ interpreter or Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler which makes very useful to develop large C/C++ codebases/projects/products especially involve big-data processing, since each component/function can be developed one-at-a-time and all the variables held in RAM and you don't have to re-compile, re-run and serialize variables and memory to hard disk and then deserialize/re-load them into the memory. In fact, using the approach combined the power of both C/C++ and scripted/interpreted languages such as Python.
