Variables

Variables exposed by a C library can be declared inside a lib declaration using a global-variable-like declaration:

lib C
  $errno : Int32
end

Then it can be get and set:

C.errno #=> some value
C.errno = 0
C.errno #=> 0

A variable can be marked as thread local with an attribute:

lib C
  @[ThreadLocal]
  $errno : Int32
end

Refer to the type grammar for the notation used in external variables types.
