  User functions via dlopen()? (Message 1 to 1 of 1)

Does anyone have a reasonably robust patch for 3.7 (or know of a Povray
fork) which will allow me to call native code user functions via a DLL
loaded with dlopen()?

The problem I'm trying to solve: I'm trying to do procedural terrain,
and the process of creating the terrain is basically too much for
Povray's bytecode VM. I want to do it in C instead for speed. (And
flexibility --- I'm generating the terrain from NASA PDS files.) I would
very much like to be able to use native code instead.
