Cast a function pointer to a long

I am not sure if that is feasible, but I need to cast a function pointer to long in order to map C level code back to java code.


A pointer's value is an integer, you just need to know what exactly you are doing, and allocate enough storage to store the pointer's value. (In a 32bit OS, a pointer occupies 32bit storage, in a 64bit OS, pointer occupies 64bit storage).

A C example:

#include <stdio.h>

void fun()

typedef void (*fun_type)();

int main()
    long long int a = (long long int)fun;

    fun_type func_point = (fun_type)a;

    return 0;
