The libeyelink-sys crate provides declarations and linkage for the libeyelink_core and libeyelink_core_graphics C libraries. Following the *-sys package conventions, the libeyelink-sys crate does not define higher-level or safe abstractions over the native library functions.

The bindings were generated automatically with bindgen:

bindgen /usr/include/core_expt.h -o src/base.rs --with-derive-default

If the sdl-graphics feature is enabled, the bindings are generated from:

bindgen /usr/include/sdl_expt.h -o src/sdl-graphics.rs --blacklist-function '^str.*' --blacklist-function '.*cvt.*' --with-derive-default


You must have the Linux Eyelink SDK installed from SR Research. Steps to install:

  2. Add apt repository
