Just pass the array to your C function that accepts an unsafe pointer.
The compiler will perform the conversion automatically.

You can also use the withUnsafeMutableBufferPointer method, but make
sure to use the pointer only inside of the closure.  Don't try to get
a pointer to array contents and persist it.  The pointer will become


(j){printf("%d\n",i);}}} /*Dmitri Gribenko <gribozavr at gmail.com>*/
